Hello Laurens
Another fantastic portrait of bird. Exposure and light are superb, heron is very detailed and looks beautifull on this BG.
Best regards Siggi

Hallo Lou,
Mooie foto van deze Geelkruinkwak. Jammer dat je zijn prachtige sluierveren achter op de kop niet kunt zien. Bijzonder mooie natuurlijke kleuren tegen een goede contrasterende achtergrond. Uitstekende scherpte en details.

Hello Lou,
Fine capture of a Yellow-crowned Night Heron. The POV shows its most features (even if would be nice to see the back of its head as Peter says) with good sharpness and colours in an excellent composition with the palm fron BG.
Thanks and best wishes,

Very thoughtful looking Night Heron, Laurens.
This is a great image of this bird in its natural habitat.
I like the uppish POV here and the very sharp focus on the eye.
Well done and TFS.

Ciao Lou, beutiful bird in nice pose, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Lou,

An excellent close-up of this Heron with lovely colors, sharpness & details. Very nicely taken & presented. TFS & regards.


Hello Laurens

Your series about Costa Rica is very pleasant and the viewer can learn a lot about the animals living there. I like this picture of the Heron very much as I love to see them also in my country, but it certainly is a different species.

I wish you all the best for the new year!

Kind regards

Hello Laurens,
A beautiful view of a Night Heron keeping watch! Very interesting to see this Yellow-crowned species. Great focus on the eye and fine sharp details. I like the palm leaves as a background too.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi Lou,

You found the most wonderful Herons in Costa Rica. I don't think I've seen this yellow head before. The colors and details of the bird are superb - I love his face and wings. The pose on the branch and the setting is lovely.


Hi Lou,

Another great shot of this beautifully coloured heron in a lovely pose.
TFS. Have a nice X-mas feast an New Year MF!
