I was out a marina taking pictures of an osprey nest, when I saw something moving out of the corner of my eye.

I couldn't have been more surprised! I don't know of any GBH (great blue heron) nests in the area. Obviously there is one!

He flew right through the marina! I love this shot, but it seemed like it would be too busy for a free study. I actually see it in my mind as b&w, but I couldn't get that to work to my satisfaction.

Fantastic shot! My only remark is as you probably might expect the missing tip of the wing :)

Fabulous! The focus... the speed... just missing that one little tip to the wing for perfection.

Great DOF, too!
