Early morning on the river offered an opportunity to capture a good look at this bird's windblown tail.

The windblown tail works beautifully in your composition. A perfect pose too, and a great background (which somewhat appears “zoomed,” but isn’t). Excellent work, Chuck.

This is wonderful- love the windblown tail and head turn. The background adds to the sense of motion and energy. Well done!
