Hallo Lou.

Een aparte zoals die daar zit. Lijkt een beetje te suffen.
Goed op de foto gezet en eerst moet je ze maar zien te vinden tussen al die struiken.
Mooie foto.

Hallo Lou,
Bijzonder dat je deze hebt kunnen vinden. Op mijn vele reizen in Midden- en Zuid-Amerika heb ik hem nooit gezien.
Mooie foto waarin de typische snavel goed zichtbaar is. Prachtige natuurlijke kleuren in een goed contrast tegen de donkere achtergrond. Prima compositie.

Hello Lou,
A fine capture of a Boat-billed Heron. The POV, technical qualities and BG contribute to showing the features of this species including the large boat-shaped bill with fine clarity.
I have seen this species in Trinidad but it was almost too dark to be photographed with my then analogue camera.
Thanks and have a happy and healthy 2010!

Hello Laurens,
Very beautiful photo of this heron. Great colours, light and sharpness.
Wish you all the best for 2010,
best regards,

Interesting heron shot. I can imagine these are hard to take. Thanks for sharing

Hello Laurens,
A fine capture showing the Boat-billed Heron not often seen here! It does look as if it is just about to fall of the branch! :-) Great focus, fine details and colours.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Hello Laurens,

You're capturing well this bird by a good composition, a good focus and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the spectacle that a Boat-billed is stopping on sprig. It's interesting in its long bill and blue head and thin grey feather. And, the surrounding green draws out a good atmosphere in this image.

Kind regards,
