Whoua, quelle jolie prise !
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Martine.
Terrific position you've caught him in! The color of the water really shows him off!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elizabeth, the water looked better than usual that day luckily.
I LOVE the "fingertips" and feet. So expressive. smile And to think we've learned a lot about aerodynamics from such images, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: When you look at some aircraft you can certainly see 'bird shapes' and vice versa, Ginnie.
It looks like a stealth bomber Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Probably doesn't cost as much, Andrew...smile

This split second, makes it look strange - as if it tripped over those long toes and is in the process of falling forward into the water.

Great catch and detail.
Frank L Croston.: It does a bit, Louis, though they usually do everything gracefully, thank you.
Looks like he (she) is conducting a choir.
Frank L Croston.: It does, Martin, I hadn't noticed that before.
