And here is a in-flight Great Blue Heron (I'm unsure if it is the same heron...there are a number of 'em in this area.)

A great bird with a complicated flight, Jerry... :)
Very good quality of the images.
Both of them are very interesting.

I like the opening shot with the heron seemingly ready for a plunge into the water to capture a fish. The contrast between the heron and the blue water helps to make the bird stand out strongly in the image and enhances the pose you caught it in.
