[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There were several of these tall birds feeding in this coastal area, unsure what they were eating but seemed to move around a great deal. Tried unsuccessfully to get a photo of one flying but was too slow to get the shot.
They were close to a metre tall.

Hello Murray,
This is an attractive composition, with good focus on the bird!
The green meadow makes a nice background, and the heron seems to be focused on some food, hehehe...

Hi Murray,

A nice image of the geron, the photo has agood composition, sharpness and beautiful colors. Thanks for sharing.


Hi Murray,
A very clear capture of this g. heron.
I like the pose got and the proper DOF choice.
The exposure on the whites of this bird is so difficult, I have lots of pictures of it overexposed, but you managed this one pretty well and keep a lot of details on the feathers.
Well done and thanks for share it.
Best regards,
