This is so wonderful as I never actual seen this bird do this task and looks so well flying to capture it's dinner makes me hungry strange yet I ate a large breakfast a sort time ago.   Posted: 11/12/2019 07:41:20

Beautiful action shot; the pier in the background lines up perfectly with the bird. The colors and reflections, as well as the detail on the tops of the wings, make this image interesting and effective. I am biased, though, the white egret is one of my favorite birds!   Posted: 11/15/2019 17:49:32

A great shot Paul. I love the colours and lighting that you've captured. I also like the fact that its head is in the dark area of the post/its reflection and so the bird's head really stands out. Well done.   Posted: 11/29/2019 09:55:00

Hi Paul, you have done very well to capture the bird as it dives into the water,the shutter speed of 1600 has allowed the bird to be sharp. Perhaps having a horizontal format would include the rest of the wings in the frame.   Posted: 11/30/2019 04:37:17
