WOW, you continue to impress! You even captured the lost leaf at the bottom left corner. The beautiful eye, the feet, the downward stroke of the wings and the clean separation from the BG all add to the quality of the image.

Beautiful, I love the trailing feet behind the wing!  Fantastic detail too, such an impressive heron.

Thanks Joe - I started to remove the leaf in the bottom left but then thought it added a bit of character to the image.  As always, appreciate your kind words.

Thanks Karl.  Glad to see the Osprey returning to the frozen North.  I'm off in the am for 11 days in Colorado so won't be back in for 2-weeks or so.  C U then.

Jake, an awesome shot. The detail in the wing is beautiful, and the nesting material takes it up a level.
