How beautiful! That is a once in a lifetime shot.

I didn't realize there was a photo forum. ::clappingoverhead::

I had a long telephoto on the camera, and suddenly, I was aware of the egret passing overhead.  I just had time to swing it up and get a quick shot.  Turned out pretty good, only missed a bit of the wing.

That is not an easy shot to make, especially with a telephoto lens and pointing it overhead. The pic reveals sharp focus and steady hands. ::takingphoto::

And a large helping of good luck.

Better being lucky at times huh, considering the normal best laid plans of man?

 Good to see you Brother Barbarian - Eugene here.   ::smile::

Never saw the point in disturbing images.   Some people do that well, and there are those that open important issues.  But I've always looked for the beautiful in nature.   Thank you for your kind words.

Thanks Barb, and I'm doing good. I reckon you knew that I was ready for a move, and it's nice to be back here. ::disco::

A much nicer place here, isn't it?

The folks here are really nice people, and they aren't kidding about it being grace-centered.
