Excellent flight capture of the two hen mallards, Jose! Both ducks are in sharp crisp focus and their wing beats are almost perfectly synchronized.

Beautiful picturesque capture of the great egret, Dave!

This shot really is outstanding, Vassilis! It is so beautifully captured. I take my hat off to you on this one.

Super nice capture, Paul! It's such an appealing shot.

Wonderful capture of the Bald Eagle, Rich! It is a very appealing flight shot of our national bird.:-)



:-)Thanks Mike--your encouraging comments are always appreciated..

Thank you ! I was amazed to get 4-5 shots in focus in each head-on flight of the kingfisher !

Egrets always retract their necks into a characteristic “S” shape while in flight

Intermediate egret (external link): Never heard of.

I just love this image. He just looks like he's out for a cruise, not really hunting... just having fun.

Well, RAL...I've never heard of an intermediate egret either. I looked them up on Google, and sure enough, I believe that's what you captured. And this shot is really a beauty, by the way. Excellent photography.

This is most definitely a gold star eagle capture, Ed! Such an appealing shot!

Awesome Redtail shot LD. Well lit, great pose, and superb exposure and detail. Very nice.

Thank you so much for the great kudos, EB! I surely do appreciate the thoughtful, encouraging compliment.
