Tough subject (but a favorite of mine) and a tough background but you really made it work. Thanks for showing, Jude.
Mark


Hi Mark, got few shots while hovering above water. I preferred this over the others due to the wingspread and the back lighting though the wings. Glad you like it.

Hey! I like the 1/3 positioning of the bird, works much better than if it had been in the center and I really like the plain background because it gives attention to the bird

Now this is a very nice shot of a bird you don't see very often. Ed


Hi Ed, even here you cannot spot them easily. I was lucky to spot it after approximately 2 years.
