Excellent capture, Barracuba. It looks likea fairlylarge bird and usually they don't land, they kinda crash in the water!

Not exactly a picture perfect landing, rather clumsy looking, but you caught it well.

Well, when I used to be a pilot, they said any landing you can walk away from is a good one.

This guy might not be graceful but I'll bet he's never crashed.

We say the same about docking a boat. In that particular river we were taking shots of salt water crocs, so I think their landing skills would be right on.:-)

Barracuba,

Good candid capture of an akward moment. But as Cal said form doesn't matter sometimes.

Aloha
