Thats a great shot - aside from the bird, I really like the detail in the water.

The last of the phone shots in your earlier post made me smile!

Wow, what a great captue. I will think how I write for best translation.
We didnt have that success with hunting this week. On the smaller area we only shoot one calf and on the bigger area one young female (without calves)
Seeems that we dont have so much moose as expected. We didnt hear a lot of shoots from the neihgbours either....
You can read our hunting association site www.jagareforbundet.se
There you can see some big moose shot this week from different parts of Sweden.

Wow, stunning!

Tezzie said...

Again...I've no idea how you do it. Capture such awesomeness, that is <3

Andrea said...

What a delicate little toe dance ... I had to laugh, though at the same time I am thinking "How does Brian do that?"
I swear you have inside connections with nature and they all see you coming and start doing tricks. If you don't put these pictures into print, you are missing your calling ... and beleive me I would be at the front of the line to buy it. Be well, Brian ...

I love the water drag on those long legs. A fascinating shot. I could look at it all day.

Beth said...

Excellent shot!!

Amy Burzese said...

Awesome catch, Brian!!!

MTWaggin said...

Wow, that was indeed perfect timing. I love shots like this that show things you wouldn't see otherwise, like the positions of all their body parts during take off! Lovely as usual.

Marc Heath said...

Great timing, just need some ballet music!

Victoria Porter said...

An amazing capture... perfect timing and perfectly exposed! (found you via weekly top shot)

Pamela Gordon said...

Ditto all the above! :)

Whoa, Brian! Jaw-dropping shot. I can't stop looking at the feet and water action trailing behind. Such a perfect pose--like he's doing a pirouette on the water. Very graceful.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Awesome!!! I love how you capture these images at a moment in time.

Ida said...

Truly awesome and amazing shot. You really have a knack for getting the perfect shot at the perfect timing.

Madge Bloom said...

Magnificent... that's the only word I can think of to describe the perfect capture! Thank you so much for sharing on 'Weekly Top Shot #52,' my meme's first anniversary!

Liam said...

Stunning! :):):)

Darn you Brian. I just thought I got some great shots of a goose landing in the water. You make my shots look like crap. Ha ha. Awesome I have so much appreciation for the details you got in this shot way to go.

Andrew said...

It's a fantastic image Brian... so much detail.

Leenie said...

Don;t you just love a rapid-fire lens!! Way to be there to catch the water walker.

Leenie said...

Okay the camera shutter is rapid-fire not the lens.

Connie Smiley said...

Amazing shot, once again, Brian! You really captured the moment with the tip toes and following wake.

Dina said...

I love it when they do that. You got him good!
