Black-crowned night heron in flight

I find the flight of birds very graceful. This juvenile black-crowned night heron was mostly statuesque while fishing in the shallows, but every so often it took flight to relocate, gliding over turbulent waters.

    • Thanks. I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 with a 24x 25-600mm equivalent zoom lens. The specs for these photos are: Focal length: 85.8, F number: 5, Exposure time: 1/1,600. The photos were taken on auto setting so I just focused on the bird and then tried to follow it in flight. I was happy to get a few photos that turned out well!
