This image was taken at a local marsh-lake, which usually has a few herons there now, for the breeding season. I thought I would try an in-flight image, although I have done very little of that type of bird photography, over the years. Hope this one is satisfactory!

Looks very good to me, Paul, I like the topside view and soft light.
