[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this picture at Lagoa Grande (Big Lagoon), a place where I usually go to in order to shoot. Many pictures I've already posted here were taken there.

From time to time this heron goes there. I don't know where it comes from and where it goes to when it leaves the place. I have dozens of shots of this bird, but I still didn't have an action shot like this.

Best regards to Luiz Felipe, Paulo Raphael and Niceia, who were rooting for me while I was trying to take the picture.

I used continuous shooting.

Great capture Livio, a good action shot frozen in time.
Good colours and clarity.
Well done1

Excellent capture Livio. Perfect handling of the light leaving a lot of details in the white plumage. Perfect dof and the colours on the bird are very good but the water could use a little saturaion.

I think I would crop the picture to landscape format using the proportions 4:7 and crop from the top of the picture only (about 2/3). That is a personal matter of course but I think it would be nice and more interesting.

Very good action shot Livio. Great background. I like the wings position. I agree with Mogens about cropping: it would add dynamism and concentrate the attention on the bird's flight.

Your photo make me draeming about flying ;-) I love freedom visible at your photo.
Great shot!

Great shot, great sharpness, great POV.
Very well done.

This is a good action-picture, I can see it is sharp and on the other hand, I can see the blur of the action, that's funny, nice moment, Livio !

Very nice flying capture, great details.
Well done!
