Thank you Jeff. Yes, when the condition of weather and lighting are right it can become a quite nice shot.

I love the motion you caught here, the water droplets, wings and legs ready to take flight.. all reflected in the beautiful colored waters in the foreground. A lovely image and another great shot, Yves.

Thanks for comment Heather. I still need practice with birds in flight but sometimes I get a good one like this one.

Thank you Debra. I like to take shot at that big bird because the colours are very different depending of the light and weathr conditions.

Nicely composed image with great colours. The timing is perfect, the wings in position to lift this amazing heron up and out of the water.

Big bird uses that nice dome shape wings moves to lift itself over water to get air borned. Just about to fly away from the site.
