Wow, Mike. This is a great shot!

Hi Mike

Running late this morning, but enough time to see that this is an excellent post. Good POV, clarity and details. TFS.

I am practicing taking shots of Herons in flight. When I get one this good I'll be happy. Beautiful moment and very well captured Mike. Well done :)

Hi Mike,
Looks like you're not posting anymore, but this is second of your bird shots that I've added to my fav's. I added the first one before I really understood the protocol, but I've never seen any bird shots that come close to your wonderful work. Wishing you health, love & joy, Pat
