    Oh, fantastic!

  2. Dan Antion says:

    Excellent capture. He looks so graceful in flight.

  3. That’s one of those once in a lifetime shots, Janet. Impressive. 🙂

    • Thankfully I had my camera with the telephoto that day and not just my phone. He was on the other side of the small lake a few blocks from our house and I sat there for some time watching and taking photos.

    Wonderful capture Janet. They are so majestic but I’ll admit they make me think of pterodactyls when they squalk

    I cannot wait for the Herons to return – and Egrets and Cormorants. We have a rather large Cormorant population that returns to our pond every spring. They are noisy little boogers but amazing creatures.

    • I agree!! I love them all, but the cormorants are the most amazing. They can stay underwater so long!

      • words4jp says:

        I know! They also love dead trees – on land or tree trunks floating in the water. and when the group extends their wings out to the side (all at once) they look like they could be a subject pulled from an Edgar Allen Poe piece…..

  6. Debbie Smyth says:

    You caught that very well Janet. We can see the movement in the wings, but his eye is nicely lit and focused. Excellent!

  7. Talk about the “decisive moment.” You captured it!

    Magical. Don’t you love it when that kind of thing happens?
