This is lovely, Mark.
I have tried very hard to get an avocet in flight, but have not succeeded yet.
You did a great job with freezing his motion with sharp details and an excellent pose.

Hello Marc,
Very good photo of this Avocet in flight. Fantastic sharpness, composition and exposure.
Personally I would have put some more blue in the BG. It's a bit gloomy now.
