This is a first for me. Finally getting a bird in flight facing me. It was low tide he was hunting for little fish, when he decided to take off and fly towards me! Hope you like it! Still learning my new camera!

Hello Erika,
this moment is wonderful and I like the sharpness and the light very much. We can see the structure of the wings so well, excellent shot, you can be proud of it.
Thanks and have a nice weekend

Hello Erika,
A very good capture of this egret!
You are doing pretty well with your new cam, got a fine in flight photo of this beauty bird.
Technically you kept under control all the whites here, on the water as well as on the bird's feathers.
Good work and thanks for share it.
Best regards,

  • Great

Hello Erika,
A great in-flight capture full of detail, color and action. The huge wings remind me of a big white butterfly. Love the low POV and the way the light seems to illuminate the trailing edge of it's left wings. Well done!!
