    Nice take-off pose, lovely blue water and I like the water drops. Good focus on the head.

    I took a break from working on myupcoming B&H Event Space program, Phootographing Birds in Flight. As a purported expert on the subject I'd say that this one is the bomb! The wing position and the pose are incredible and the hole in the water and all the droplets add greatly.

    What date?

    Looks great all around. Nice detail on the bird with a great pose. The trailing water is nice as well.
