J'ai choisi cette image pour la précision et la munition de la photo. J'aime beaucoup la position de ses ailes et j'aime qu'on puisse apprendre a travers cette image. (apprendre comment ces oiseaux attrape leur nourriture.) Par contre, se que je trouve très intéressant est la flaque que l'oiseau fait lors de son décollage. J'aime le fait que les gouttes d'eau revolent. Lorsque j'ai vu cette image, j'ai ressenti de l’apaisement de voir tout la beauté de cette animale.
