Terrific POV for this large heron.
The plumage shows well,and you have achieved excellent eye detail.
Lovely natural colours.
Great job minimizing the civilization in the scene,it still has a wild feel to it despite the man made perch.
Well focused .

Yes I agree, this is indeed a striking bird in a beautiful pose. The details of the whole bird are beautifully captured, from the tuft of fine feathers on its head right down to the matchstick legs. The clarity of the eye is remarkable as not only is the yellow well seen even the black pupil that looks like a dot. The dried grass creates a great natural looking backdrop. Thanks for sharing.

I agree with you, Everton; this certainly is your best image of a Heron.
You got the best point of view here to capture the bird in full profile. The picture is very life-like with superb details and all natural colors. I especially like the plume extending behind the head of the bird.
TFS and regards.

A great capture of a Great Blue Heron: the POV, composition and lighting are ideal and the sharpness shows it up well against the OOF natural contrasting BG.
A very nice shot and thanks for sharing it!

this is indeed a cracking shot,a very good DOF has isolated this elegant looking Heron from the background perfectly. Nice composition with him looking into the right of the frame too, well done my friend :o)

This is an excellent capture of the Heron. I think it is one of your best shots. Marvelous colors and details from head to toe. The face and yellow eye are magnificent. He stands out so well from the background. Lovely natural setting and wonderful composition.
