[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These are beautiful birds but my gawd they're not so efficient at the fishing game . This one took about 15 minutes to catch a single small fish. Meanwhile, the belted kingfishers were dipping and diving in behind this heron and making catches on almost every attempt.

Ciao Derek, great capture of beautiful heron, fine details, wonderful natural colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Hi Derek,
interesting bird. Nice environment. Perfect point of view. Very good presentation.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Derek,
I am impressed by the magnificent sharpness and details of this image. The composition is wonderful. Very nice colors and outstanding clarity. It is a superb photo. Lovely contrast against the brown background. A top quality image. I my country it is very difficult to approach this bird because he is very shy.

  • Great
