excellente photo du Héron Vert prise par une lumière difficile,
j'aime qu'il soit de loin et que l'on voit son habitat avec lui,
excellent focus netteté et détails, TFS


Salut Pierre,
the reflection in this shot is amazing, realy like a mirror.
The black Heron is so noble and I love the golden eye. Great luck to see such a beautiful bird - thanks for sharing it with us.

Hi Pierre,
this low angle is exciting with the reflection well seen. The grasses in the water are so lively and give a special effect .
the vastness and the calmness of the place is demonstrated by the space in front of the heron.
A well composed shot.

Hi Pierre,
A very well composed image showing this heron in its natural surroundings.Good exposure and nice depth giving interesting natural reflections.

Salut Pierre
You present an excellent study of a Green Heron in its natural surroundings.

The perfect focus offers many details e.g. THE eyes and the reflections in the clear water add interest.

The exposure is well chosen : this type of surroundings is always difficult to photograph, with the water reflecting the sun... well done!

Bonne soiree
Kind regards
from South Africa
