Héron cendré

I'm not a bird-specialist, but by chance I saw this Grey heron on the snow not too far away from me. He was occupied to look for some food -not so easy in wintertime- when water is frozen.
Another seasonal picture.

I'm not so present these days, but Christmas-time is always busy, especially for women..

Hello Anne,
Excellent photo of this Grey Heron in wintry conditions. Beautiful colours and great sharpness. Nice contrasting background. Beautiful composition too.

A pleasant bird picture surprise from you at this time of the year, Anne. The Grey Heron you have captured in cold conditions look sprightly though.
The picture is sharp and crisp like a winter day and the surroundings go well with the image.

Hi Anne.
You have frozen a nice scene. Glance of the heron, back POV allow to us to watch the scene by bird’s eyes. I also like the framing of the scene. TFS and warm regards.

Ciao Anne, fascinating winter view with lovely heron in the snow, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Anne

Quelle superbe chance que tu as de rencontrer un héron en plein hiver,
avec une superbe composition et quel beau contraste entre les tons
des couleurs froides du héron et du sol & neige avec les tons
de couleurs chaudes de la végétation en dessous de l'eau, TFS

Hello Anne,
A great shot of this pretty Grey Heron who looks a bit puzzled as to where to search for food, since the pond is frozen. Focus is tac sharp allowing us to see the beautiful markings and colors in it's plumage. I especially like the long strands on it's back which are readily visible.
Your right about Christmas time and women, my wife never seems to stop this time of the year:)
