I had a really cool shot that would have been fun to enter:

but I feel in love with this one. There was just something special about it.

When I was up at chincoteague shooting for the bird challenge, I forced myself to try some abstract shots. (and I had to force myself!!! I was having way too much fun shooting the normal bird shots, and it was actually irritating having to take a break! :)

Well, I'm sorry I hadn't tried more of the abstract -- I had a blast playing with them.

outtakes:

The colour, flow and softness are wonderful but its the legs that makes this shot for me.

Lovely abstract imo. Enough definition that it's easy to see the bird's flight and enough blur that we have a real sense of movement. Voted earlier.

Lovely! The rich vibrant blue works well as a foil to the bird (an egret?)
