The long exposure makes this outstanding! It also blends the blends the plumage with the flowing water.

Stunning image, Stu - the 'fabric' of the rushing water is a perfect backdrop for the fine detail in the wings. This almost seems monochrome except for those sparse points of vibrant green. Five stars!
