Another shot of one of the Tricolored Herons(Egretta tricolor 65cm)that I saw in Cayo Ensenachos, Cuba while I was there last December. It's a very shy bird so you need big glass to be able to captured them.

Ciao Mario

This is a superb heron photo from you!
I really love its pose here and the fantastic composition created here.
The lighting is also very well managd and, although the BG is a bit more highlighted than the subject, you managed to get sufficient details on the heron of a great shot.
The colors are also lovely and the framing and fitting.

Bravo and TFS

Bonsoir Mario,

Une belle image de ce héron, la photo a une bonne composition, netteté et de jolies couleurs. Bonne soirée.

Hi Mario,

This is an interesting composition, and very well timed. I like the space that you kept on the left side.

It is unfortunate that the light on the bird was so poor that there is not much detail visible in the feathers. I took a shot at bringing out some detail in the workshop. Now that I have posted it, I see that I left a bit of a halo around the bird. A little less blur might have been better.
TFS, Joel
