Hello Annick !
What a great portrait of this bird ! I have seen many, in my region, but never managed to get a good picture like this one. Excellent details, beautiful colors, nice blured BG, and I also like the traditional pose of the heron. So typical from these birds. I thinks the delicate green BG work very well with the rey color of the plumage. Very well done !

Nice close up of a very shy bird, it's a shame but you have realy over sharpened the picture.

You made good use of the tameness of this Amsterdam Heron by taking what I think is a fine portrait, with good sharpness, lighting and composition and set in a fine contrasting BG.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

an amazing capture.
How did you get so close?
I think it's been cropped a bit tight in front of the beak but otherwise it's stunning.

I love these kind of portraits.
Wonderful soft green color tones in the BG and frame.
These birds always have that great angry look on there faces, lovely.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a great weekend, Harry

Is the the bird we know as the Grey Heron?
It is a lovely portrait, full of detail, very sharp and good colours. You must have got fairly close.

Beautiful Portrait of the gray one! It really is a twin to the American Great Blue Heron, slight color difference aside.
Great Detail on a perfect background! Bravo, Annick!
