This grey heron had discovered its prey in the lake and it's sudden flying so rapidly and I almost missed it by a glance. I was lucky to capture the motion of it without too much camera shake otherwise the motion would have been so blurry. For taking bird photos, it is better prepare your shutter to higher speed for the sudden movement even though they seem calm.

very nice. Great bird caught in the act.One could say that the head is in the dark reflection but i know this is all about seizing the moment. Well done.

Beautifully caught the moment as the Grey-Heron taken off, Anna.
Shutter speed well set, great sharp image inspite the motion of the bird. Autumn colors on the trees on far side added vivid tone to the image.

Hi Anna, This is an absolutely beautiful image, considering you weren't prepared for it and birds'movements are so fast !
The bird is great and the background is magnificent : The lonely hill, the scarce autumn trees and their reflections in the lake !

The distance between the bird and the hill is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the Grey Heron in flight. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Anna, you caught a very big grey heron individual near that lake, it was obviously searching for some preys, frogs or fishes, excellent panorama, regards
