Beautiful picture. I love the way the wings are almost touching the reflected wings.

You caught that bird just at the right moment Michael. Nice shot.

Julie said...

Golly, Michael, I am speechless. And that does not happen often!

You have captured the point of take-off superbly and together with the reflection have completed the circle. I like the comparison of this circle with the straight lines and solidity of the pier. The range of greys is terrific. I appreciate what you have achieved with this photograph. Thank you.

Julie: The Great Blue and I had a nice visit for about 25 minutes before he (she) decided another fishing site was in order. By that time I had taken the camera off of the tripod and was ready for the getaway.
