Very beautiful moment captured. I wish it was cropped more so I could get a better look at the herons. I love the dance that is taking place...much like foreplay?

bon retour parmi nous, ça fait un moment qu'on avait pas de publication. Très bonne image instructive, déclenchement opportun pour saisir les hérons qui se font face.

THERE YOU ARE!!!
We sure have missed you around here.
Don't worry so much about critiquing other photos...just concentrate on posting when you get a good one...and I know you get a lot of good ones! :)
This is a fine example. I wish I could see an entire video of this courtship ritual. Lovely shot captured in the middle of a wonderful display of avian dance! :)

Hi Ken, Welcome back!
What a fun occasion to witness and share with us. Though distant, details of the Herons are good and the courtship very evident. I like how you added the other images in WS. Love is in the air! Tfs Richard

I am very glad that you are here again with your amazing pictured. Superb pair of beautiful birds have been pictured by you with great skill. Amazing POV and framing. Excellent selection of the DOF. I like perfect sharpness of the birds, bank of the lake and water surface too. Colours are also superb. Well done and TFS.
