Very pleasing pose with nice sharpness. I wonder about bringing out a little more lightness and contrast on the bird, but I know how dark the undersides can be.

I always wonder if those feathers sticking up mid-wing are the equivalent of spoilers on a sailplane, as I see them being deployed on the egrets I shoot as they make their final approach to a landing.

Love this image, Allen! It makes me think of one of those dreamy looking Japanese art watercolor paintings. Nicely captured!

Well done flight shot with exceptional detail in the body and wings. The head is a tad soft but acceptable.

Just beautiful, Allen. I love that he has his beak open slightly. The wing position and those feathers sticking up are nice. I am so glad the Green Herons are posing for you. I am enjoying your shots.

Hi Allen,

I see nothing wrong with this one. It shows the miracle of flight and the eyes of the heron shows the effort being taken. Awesome…Jim

Superb flight pose, Allen, and I like the sightly open beak.
