Hi Bryan,
A awesome capture of this heron in flight.
Great panning effect with the bird in perfect sharpness! Nice flying position of the wings. Good light and adequate PP work to maintain this natural presentation.
Well done,
Have a nice WE.

Hi Bryan,
Nice catch, the DoF and light are good in this one, good sharp focus on the heron. Best wishes

Another nice capture! Bryan Great color and detail in the heron and good contrast against the brush. Not easy to get in focus and detail in the wing feathers is wonderful. Good work! Have a great weekend, Lori

Excellent pan and great timing. You leave plenty of room for action to take place. Nice details on the subject. Very well done, tfs.

Hi Bryan,

A nice in-flight capture of the heron. Good sharpness, and your panning motion did a good job blurring the background. The position of the heron in the frame is excellent. Well done!

Best regards,
