A wonderful photo that has it all — motif, timing, composition, sharpness

May I suggest a little tighter crop to do justice to the details in the feathering? I'm sure it would be better if starting from the original. Hope you don't mind.

Thanks, Kjell.

No I don't mind at all. I'm always leery of cropping too much. It was cropped a bit when I posted it but it stood up to the further crop just fine.

That is a very cool picture! I wonder why the sudden stop? It looks like Kramer coming into Jerry's apartment!

Great action capture on a tough subject to expose properly.

Wonderful detail on a white bird - well done! I don't usually have much luck taking pictures of egrets.

Great detail in a hard to photograph subject. I too like the cropped version.
