[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture of a great blue actually represents the miss of a one in a million picture.

I was photographing some rapids at Great Falls, MD, when suddenly it came swooping down the river towards me. With my eye glued to the camera, I only noticed it at the last moment, and though I had the chance to swivel round a squeeze off this shot and one r two others, the chance to see it heading straight at me was gone. Also some of the definition - this is a pretty tight crop
