Very nice shot, Melissa...a very tough one to make. I know that, because I've yet to make a capture like yours. And I've tried many times.

Thank you very much, Mike, Paul, Melissa and Robert!

Beautiful shot, Bill!

Another striking spoony shot, Shalu!! You surely did capture the the beautiful green and blue colors in the wings. The sharpness of this bird against the super background really make her stand out nicely.

We have ducks 1-2 blocks away.
They fly out before the Sun crests the hill and fly in after dark.
So an experiment of ISO 12K

Very nice shot of the three ladies flying together, Robert.

Many thanks, Shalu. This flight shot of the belted kingfisher is truly remarkable!! They don't get any better than this.

This one got me thinking that if the Wright Brothers could have seen this section "Birds in Flight" they might have had an easier time figuring out aerodynamics.
You might also wonder why the swans a few frames back have such long necks. Ahhh, center of gravity concerns.
Great photo BTW.
