Caught this Egret in flight at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge.

I think this is a very gracious bird in flight.... On the ground it is pretty boring

I think focus and exposure are both top notch. Getting exposure right on egrets, especially against the sky is very difficult for me, but you managed it extremely well. I like all the detail I see in the outstreched wings. I do think the crop is too tight top and bottom. I think I would have tried vertical crop on this one even though I generally prefer the landscape as I suspect you do too. Nice work.

Bonsoir Stalle

Excellente prise,l'éclairage offre un ambiance calme et le vol de l'oiseau semble s'effectuer tout en douceur. Félicitations pour la composition et la netteté.

Merci pour l'envoie et au revoir...JP
