Hello Ivo,
Well captured in-flight shot. The bird is well focused and I liked the reflection off the water.

Wow, very good shot of this guy. i like that he's flying just above water and that his reflection is well seen and clear in the water.

Good sharpness and clarity. Well done.


Just beautiful.
Nice action with brilliant colors.
All perfect.

Good color contrast of the black and white bird against a glassy dark water surface! The reflection is really cool too. Excellent capture!
