Theres something very special capturing a bird in flight. Youve done it very effectively.

Great in flight capture and nicley framed, I do find the rear bird distracting though, have you thought of cloning it out, could possibly make the image stronger.

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to comment, they are all much appreciated.

In answer to the questions,

Chris & Jim the Herons were allowing me to get to about 20' in front of them. A few times dogs in the park would along the path and scare them. This was when I captured this picture as a bird flew within feet of me and began to change direction.

Steve, I did think about cloning out the other bird. However I liked it and thought it added a sense of ddepth to the image which I liked so I left it in.

Thanks again Clive
