I don't know what variety of heron is it ? Anyway I took this picture at sunrise and I don't alter any color in my picture so if anyone know the name of this bird please let me know. Thanks. JYB

Salut Jean-Yves, il me semble que c'est un jeune Grand Héron mais je ne suis pas un expert en Héron :-) En tous cas c'est une superbe photo en vol du Héron, très belle lumière, excellent piqué, exposition parfaite et beaucoup de détails. Bravo et merci. J'ai 'posté' un Héron semblable avant-hier ici sur le site si tu veux le voir.

Hola Jean,
perfecta captura,
nitidez y bella acción,
buen trabajo,

Salut Jean-Yves, tout comme Mario je pense que c'est un grand Héron juvéile. C'est une superbe prise de vue. Cest toujours impressionnant de voir un spécimen de cet envergure voler. Bravo pour les belles couleurs chaudes de fin de journée.


I like to see these in flight. From my knowledge it is a great grey heron,though sometimes a great blue can appear the same in flight.I think the sun did a bit of orange tint to this, so some of the defining markings are not visible. Great Blues have a bit of black crest on their heads,which I do not see here. Anyways. a good capture.

Bonjour Jean-Yves,
Beautiful action scene
very nice details and light
