[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My wife and I were on a bike ride along the Yakima River recently when I spotted this Great Blue Heron. I decided to leave a fair portion of his surroundings in this scene due to the contrasting beauty though I did crop much of it out. Blue Heron are often seen wading in the Yakima River and flying nearby. I can certainly see why this guy hung out here. It was beautiful.

God's best,

Bonita composicion Tim.
La visualizacion del ave no es la mejor, pero la belleza del ambiente donde se encuentra amerita la calificacion positiva.

Pretty composition Tim.
The visualization of the bird is not the best one, but the beauty of the atmosphere where is deserve the positive rate.

This is an excellent capture portaying the heron's habitat. The colors are beautiful and so is the composition. Thanks for posting

Very good composition, especially in the way you showed us all that lovely habitat of the heron. Makes a pleasing change from all the close up bugs lately. Good colours. Well done, Tim.

I see one of these very often on my bus runs but haven't caught him "off duty" to get a good photo yet. I love the scenery around him, it adds so much texture and color to the photo. Very nice.
