    Wow!! I'm quite thrilled and surprised that this won, I wasn't even aware that the challenge had started until I got my first comment. ... that's because I wasn't too excited about this photo, I mean I liked it but I didn't think it would win. So thank you very much for all those who gave me very high marks and all the wonderful comments, it's nice to win another 'best of' challenges.

The day I took this photo was an amazing evening on the foreshore in Applecross in our beautiful city Perth, there were quite a few birds out towards sunset playing, chasing each other and putting on a spectacular show I feel just for me :-) As you can tell I took quite a few photos this evening, I don't feel this was the best one. ..I already entered that into another competition and didn't want to repeat it.

@mrsawyer, no glam glow this time but I did soften the water somewhat.

    Love this image ... among my favorite ... I can just picture this majestic creature balancing it's flight to effectively walk on water.

    LOVE shots like this!! Being a birder myself, I dream of catching shots like this. Beautifully backlit bird on a gloriously colored water. Nice use of Rule of 3rds as well. My #1.

    IMHO - Love the gold color tone and silhouette of the bird - but I would have given this entry much higher marks if it were cropped to eliminate 1/4 of the top and right side portions so that the bird water splash were more prominent.
