Don't you love these birds. This is a marvelous photo of one. The colors are great and you can actually see the bird. Ours always run away the minute they see us. That would be fly.

Elegant pic of the Heron. I like the splash of grasses behind him. Very nice. MB

I like these birds.

Were you running after the Heron? I'm trying to imagine you sneaking up on the bird! How absurd!

Excellent capture! Herons tend to be camera shy, or, maybe I scare them.

Beautiful heron and setting. These graceful birds are so regal in their posture and movements. Walking or flying they are a sight to see.

I notice you use a lot of HDR. Are you using software to create hdr effect? (Topaz for example?)

Your photographs are outstanding!

@ Don Marchand. Actually, I don't use any HDR. I do "fix" the photos in Photoshop and a bit in Lightroom, but that's all.

Thank you for your compliment!

Fantastic! It looks like it's wearing a tuxedo because of those grasses behind it. Love it!
