Great catch with excellent background that has a very good contrast to the subject.
Very good details and colours allthough you took the side in the shadows.
Why did you use f11.0?
I saw that you used X2 TC it adds two stops to f5.6.

Beautiful shot Callie. Love the angle of her neck and head, and she's very sharp and clear. The BG looks great.

Great result with the monster lens . . . you've captured another great moment. Great colors and very fine composition. Callie, you are the King of Kruger!
De S curve van de nek is mooi hier bij deze reiger, ook zijn ogen zijn duidelijk, excellente kleuren van de pluimen, weeral schitterend werk!

It usually happens to a dark background and light object. You made the opposite and it's very nice IMO. This curves are beautiful to me but dangerous for the fishes, frogs etc.
Very well done. TFS.

I love Herons (did I already tell you that? ;))! This is a beautiful capture. The curves in the neck are great and the color of the BG contrasts very well with the colors on the Heron. The fact the BG is blurred is very nice too. This Heron is a fantastic species. Love it!

Encore une fantastique image. Et un très bel oiseau.
Merci de nous faire partager toutes es belles images.
Who would think to just capture the head and neck for a spectacular image.
I'm curious Callie, you always seem to be taking shots from permanent hides and car windows. I know there is plenty of wild thing in SA that like to eat humans, but are there places where you you can get out and walk around?

Super job on this Callie.. Excellent, excellent profile..The sun has finally broken here in Texas after 10 days of wet weather..That UPS guy should be here any minute with a new zoom lens..and of course he can't get here fast enough!!

You doubtless know that they use their beak as of a harpoon, Callie. I have already observed a blue heron during a whole night in front of a chalet in three metres of a lake in the campaign. He took advantage of the light of the outside lighting to feast on fishes and on frogs. "S" for spring or shot. I shall never forget the time when he pierced a Yellow Perch, when he has throw it in the air, opened his beak to swallow it.
This scene and the spectacle of auroras borealis are among the most beautiful things that I saw in this life. Now I can die ;-)
An excellent picture and note indeed. I had almost forgotten why I am paid here ;-)

Great shape to the neck. Is the 'S' for SuperPhotographer? I think so! Another wonderful image added to your vast gallery. I love it Callie. TFS.
