I caught this very shy Tricolored Heron (Egretta tricolor 65cm) near the El Mégano beach in Cayo Ensenachos in Cuba. It was very hard to get near the bird, it was really nervous. I was glad to have captured it with a fish in it's bill.

Hi Mario,
A lovely composition with good placement and a complimenting frame.The contrast is good making the subject stand out well and it is nice and sharp.Great decisive moment with the fish in its beak.
Regards, david

Belle photo,et je sais, cela est comme pour les herons,on approche tout doucement et hop, il décampent et toujours dans le mauvais sens, alors bien sur, quand il décolle un peut sur notre coté, on le mitraille,heureusement de photo seulement. Amitiés Thomas

Bonjour Mario
Une excellente photo avec cette belle présentation avec cette aigrette,les couleurs sont justes et parfaitements exposées, félicitations.
Merci et bravo...JP

Hi Mario,
A nice full body shot on this Tricolored Heron. Nicely composed and framed. The addition of the fish in its beak reall makes it a nice shot. Colors and detail look good.

Nice moment captured!
Good compo and use of the present light.

bonjour mario
il semble aussi difficile de photographier une aigrette qu'un heron.mais vous avez reussi quelque chose de tres bon malgres sa timidité.le poisson est effectivement un petit plus.
bien vu.

Hi Mario,
What a wonderful capture, especially becuase you caught him with his lunch. A beautiful composition with a good DOF and details.

Hi Mario,
Great DoF, sharp and neat image.
Excellent shot.
