Well done.

Hi Eugene,

Great capture of this very sad looking Great Blue Heron, it really does have a very dejected look about him. The detail in the plumage is excellent, wonderful colours, t.f.s

Cheers Rick :)

Excellent photo, Eugene.
For instance technically well done in terms of depth of field and focus. Well edited as well; sharpening.
Precise moment and well composed.
