More from the Camargue, Greater Flamingo's and fog such a perfect pairing for me. The fiog allowed me to gain a little extra ground so that my 400 could at least make them recognisable in the frame. They are very skittish by nature and would head out into the lake, the flying formation was heard before I saw them. Challenging but very worth whileSmile

I do like the two birds flying across that hazy and emerging light. Beautiful.

Lovely image.
If mine & making a print, would be tempted to clone out bird flying in at top right. Just my thought, really beautiful image, suited to letterbox.

Another beautiful atmospheric shot from the Camargue, with the letter box format just right, Ron.

A rather extraordinary sight, one which radiates a sense of calm and serenity, yet at the same time is full of commotion and deafening sound.

Ballet dancers on the ground and equally elegant in the air. The mist continues to give a lovely soft backdrop.
