Almost touching the water with the wing while flying ... Sure it's a keeper.

Hi folks.
Cog, I like the mallard, looks like he is working hard for altitude.

Gary, stunning shot, lovely.

Marc, sharper by far than most of my keepers, I'd be over the moon to take a shot like that.

Don, great shot of formation flying.

Thanks one and all for the inspiration to keep trying, and the target to aim for, but just once could you all stop raising the bar so high! ;D

Cheers Graham.

Well, the lowest one is on the 1/3rd boundary but you clipped the wing of the top bird...

Heron Combat (over a small tilapia)
Taken yesterday in stormy weather with 30 mph winds. 5D3, 70-200Lii, Tv 1/1250, ISO 1000, f/2.8
Harry was fishing with me when a younger intruder arrived. A small tilapia was caught and then the battle began. The fish got away and Harry chased off his rival. Poor light and fast action contributed to poor IQ and not sharp images, but I hope you like them anyway.

All I did was flip it upside down...here's the original!   ;D ::)   and the upside down shot is the second one.

The pond was so calm and perfect that day that the reflected image was just as sharp as the original.

in the original, you can see some ripples in the water in the upper right part of the image....and you can see those same ripples in the lower left after the flip.

north :D

Ahhhhh that's what threw me the reflection actually looks sharper than the subject!
