Another view of the Tricolored Heron (Egretta tricolor 65cm) that I caught near the El Mégano beach in Cayo Ensenachos in Cuba. A very shy bird.

Hi Mario, very cool shot of this heron. You've got a great position on him, you must have been sitting in the water. Your composition makes him look taller than he is (and he is tall enough). Your detail and colour are great.

Thanks, John

Cool shot, I like the pose.

Hello Mario, nice shot of this running heron.
Good sharpness and light.

Hello Mario,
This is a great action shot, sharp and well composed with fine lighting and contrast with the BG. Maybe I would not have cropped it so tightly, but that would depend on the original.
TFS and regards, Ivan

Bonjour Mario,
Belle prise pour cette Aigrette en pleine action. Le mouvement de cet oiseau longiligne est joli ici et cela change des poses statiques.
Compliments et merci pour le partage.

Great shot, perfect walking comosition
great sharpness and POV
well done
