It's still a great shot, the reflection in the water is perfect.

Probably, but if we all had dozens of perfectly sharp bird in flight shots we probably would not be out trying for better ones. The reflection and the golden colors reflected in the water are really great.

Panning, low light - this shot is about perfect for conditions. I'd classify it as a great shot - there are thousands of technically perfect shots that aren't a quarter as good as this one is.

I'm with Harriet on this one. The beauty and over all effect of the shot far outweighs the technical faults. Great shot!

The bird may not be perfect, but the timing was. Great shot.
