In this photo, the feathers in the wing are reasonably clearly shown considering I was on the other side of the lake.  As you can see from the shadow it was shortly after midday.  The bird flapped his wings then continued catching whatever he eats on the lake edges.  I was prepared for a take-off, had my eye to the viewfinder and fortunately had the camera set for a burst of 5 pix.  So I had a choice for this post.  With the previous shot, the wings were higher and the white underside was totally reflecting the sun, so you could see nothing of the inside wing.  I liked this also, because I have a shadow and a reflection in the water.
