Good capture and you know it is in the moment because his lenticular lens is only half way back. Great eye capture and perfect DoF for the shot. I am surprised you caught this action at only 1/1250. I generally shoot hunting Herons at 1/2500 or greater.

Hi Michael, great catch with the fish in the beak and the water splashes. I’m wondering if this is a large crop based on image quality of the feathers and fish.

Hi Micheal
The photo has nice eye contact, action and framing. What has happen to the lower righthand corner of this post?
