[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It's amazing that while on the ground a heron looks to be all neck, as shown here, when it flight it appears to be all wing. It's like one of those transformer toys that converts from a truck to a monzter robot.

Wow! Very nice inflight shot. Good focus and very sharp image. I absolutely agree with you that these birds make a remarkable transformation while in flight. I think the reason is that they tuck their neck into their body when they fly.Good POV and composition.

Nice in-flight closeup. I like the wing position and you have frozen the motion well. Good view of eye. Nice real colors.

Ah Tom...what a loverly bird this is. You have perfected now this type of shot or are on your way to it. I have so many ideas from pics like this... and not enough days in the week. Nice focus and great background making for swift flying...

Outstanding capture...POV is perfect...Very well done...TFS

Hello Tom, fantastic shot, very sharp and colorful picture, great POV and composition.. ... well done

Hi Tom,
Very good in-flight. You’re perfectly right; they look completely different in flight or on the ground fishing. Well adapted for both.
TFS, Mario.

These flying bird photos always amaze me...these are very difficult I believe. YOu did an excellent job! (So what's new, right? ha ha)

This is an awesome in shot photo.
I love the sharpness on the head and the shutter has frozen the action superbly. I like the water droplets falling behind him.
Good job with the exposure.
Natural colours help make this a winner.

bonjour Tom

l'oiseau est net de bout en bout, belle composition

Hello Tom,
Excellent pose of the flying bird. I like the fact that it is so horizontal even if it is very close to the ground. Amazing the display of the feathers. Well senn, well caught.
