wonderful colours, excellent sharpness and details, TFS
Hello Ron.. I suppose these green herons' range only extends to the plains. I've never seen one on the west coast. The are really pretty... distinctive patterns and colors. For some reason there seems to be a blue cast to this image and also a few overexposed bright areas which distract from the bird. I tried to address both issues with a workshop.

Hi Ron , great photo here , what a beautiful bird , really good color and detail , and I like the setting very much, thanks for sharing it
To walk these paths where you speak of is to walk both in Native American lands freely and then later Colonial America where people very often traveled distances of 500 or more miles by foot. I have one cousin who travels from PA to Indiana to buy land and then back again...then returned later by other means with family. Along the way he almost was killed by a deer which he was trying to catch for food...The deer is quite an aggressive beast..some know...but this image, grand and very greenish image....I felt as I was looking at it. and wondered how many before you and indeed before camera..back in the day when pencil or other and paper was carried...I also have a small collection of these...Wonderful work in a very important part of Colonial America!
What a wonderful walk you must have had! I wish there was a river here (or even a lake). I took bodies of water for granted all my life and now I miss them. I can't imagine meeting a Green Heron. You captured him beautifully with wonderful colors and sharp details. I love the setting.
Wow! Ron, what a great shot of this Green-Backed Heron. Very nice natural setting with good color and detail. Nice capture,TFS
