What a lovely effect . . it is as if we can see the air the bird is flying thru . .

I used to have to go to Korea on occasion many many years ago, and one time as I was transferring from the Seoul airport to the hotel, I saw one of these gorgeous cranes in the canal there and I was just floored. This is a beautiful bird GJC - fullo f grace, beauty, spirit and fortitude...Thank you for sharing this!!! It brings back one of the few only fond memories of those stupid business trips...;-)

I really like this shot because it is blurry :))) I would say 99% of your photos are well composed and shot with steady hand, but the blur on this one is a must, wouldn't be the same if it is static. Nice shot.

@Howard F.: Yes, rather different for me isn't it! :-) That was actually the fun of it for me.
