Difficult captures - not only did you nail the focus perfectly but also shot in low key and got it just right.

#2 is amazing. When seen side-on the bill looks so large that I have always wondered how they skim it through the water without leaving a big wake or making a lot more spray......Now I know!

Rick, I am always in awe of your photography. You (and your camera) must have been very close to the water surface to able to take those pictures. What caused the pretty ripples in #2?

Amazing!

I have been staring at these 3 photos for a while now and I haven't been able to find the right words for these pictures. Everyone is bang on, this is really awesome! #2 is spectacular but I'm drawn to #3.
