Very excited about this shot -- it reminds me of a Spanish dancer (maybe I should have entered it for Cinco de Mayo? :)

Taken down in Florida, while traveling with 21_F.gif ja-9, her husband, and my son, 21.gif jcar. We met up with [user]melon_musketeer[/user] and took a boat cruise of the 10,000 Islands. There was a wonderful rookery, and this was one of the egrets coming in for a landing. He got himself into some wonderful positions. I adored this one.

Some outtakes from the trip:

And I loved this one:

It was such an incredible trip!

A dance in flight. Amazing image.

Love the capture. Appears that you had to bring some detail back in the undersides, evident by the noise.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Fabulous study. Not as crisp as many may want or expect but doesn't always need to be. Other factors make up for that such as perfect Focal Length to get the wings and extremities in. Good look toward camera, flight toward camera and slightly open bill. 7.
