[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ardea cinerea, the biggest heron's species in Europe (it reaches 91 cm. in length). It lives in groups by the water on trees or in swamps and is fed with fish, mice, worms, frogs and snails. Here, in lake Kerkini's western shore. (The lake was formed in 1932, when a dam was built on Strymon river. It is the wildlife-richest habitat in Greece and one of the ten water-reserves protected by Ramsar Treaty.)

Hi Theologos,
Splendid shot and you have captured the action well. The flying heron with its reflection in the still water looks awesome. The green grasses in the FG and the attentive heron there adds a lot of interest in the shot too. Very neat and sharp image with lovely colour tones and superb lighting. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.
