Great stand you captured with good detail and colour. There has been some image quality lost in the crop but still good detail.
We have heaps of these herons here on the coast, maybe thats where all our frogs are going, food.

I bacame familiar with and took an instant liking to the White-faced Heron when we visited Australia. You have captured this one very nicely in breeding plumage that contrasts well against the green BG. Great composition and sharpness.
TFS ans best wishes, Ivan

The white-faced heron does not frequent around this (my) part of the world so it is always great to see a posting of one of them. You did well to capture this one although (as you said) it was quite a distance away from you.
I like your composition with sufficient space for the bird to stare at or walk in to. The colours are well saturated and the details (although a tad soft) still came out quite well defined. The green grass provided a nice BG to compliment the lovely blue/grey bird and the exposure was well controlled to bring out lovely contrasts in the white face and the grey body.
Very well done and TFS.
PS. Almost time for our "B" team to teach the mighty All Blacks a rugby lesson (chuckle). Nah, just joking. Those poor "little" Springboks will be like "like lambs led to the slaughterhouse". I think it's going to be a painful experience for us...

cette aigrette ressemble beaucoup au heron qu'il y a par ici,la netteté est assez bonne,et je vous dit bravo pour ce gros plan car ces oiseaux sont souvent assez farouche.

a wonderful heron, with a sharp and rich plumage. He seems more blue than grey, and you captured him in a position that shows him very well.

This is a very nice capture of this Heron. I spend a lot of time at the wildlife Refuge where I live and see a lot of Herons there. I know how hard they are to get close to. You did a great job here. Nice color,sharpness,detail and exposure. Well done and TFS
