this time I saw his yellow eyes - someday, I'll catch him coming towards me.

Nice! The light makes all the difference here.

But if he's coming towards you, you will not get the yellow eye. Just sayin'. This is their best angle, given how they're made.

Very nice, with all his beautiful muted colors. And this one too, could go another direction is you play with textures, though it is lovely as-is.

Magic in this and grace. Powerful. Butterfly stroke (heron stroke?) in the air. Solitary. Focused. Calm Intent. Just the two of you.

Matt, I was amazed at how large it seemed, compared to when they stand. It glides - a clown perhaps when taking off, but gliding in the air with few magnificent strokes - indeed, the bird has grace and power. And it seemed calm and focused and had intent. The photographer on the other hand, was a complete mess!

Best captured from the side, like looking at a plane in flight, the graceful clowns are beautiful in flight.

Well done and keep at it! S-
