An original pose, fine detail on feathers, great light... this will always earn the highest rating on my book. Beautiful work.

Thank you so much for your kind words, Cathleen! While I also photograph birds in flight, I will always treasure these on-the-water opportunities the most, because they allow for more detailed rendering of the fine feather detail.
