I love the wave in front, the dark riptide up above, but most of all I love the way he glides and glides behind the surf. Leo Carrillo State Park, Malibu, California. Yeah, Leo was a second cousin, as you might not have guessed. He played the sidekick of the Cisco Kid. And if you remember that t.v. series, you're as old as I am!!! Anyway, I think this is one of my better b/w bird flicks.

This shot is beautiful. I love the black and white and how his wings are out and he glides. I could picture him flying a bit lower with his wings skimming the tide.

So awkward looking on land, so graceful in flight. A beautiful capture, Rene.

Is that long gun a new addition? Seems that most of your shots have been with a 400 mm.
