[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The great blue heron (Ardea herodias) is a large wading bird in the heron family Ardeidae, common near the shores of open water and in wetlands over most of North America and Central America, as well as the Caribbean and the Galápagos Islands. It is a rare vagrant to Europe, with records from Spain, the Azores, England, and the Netherlands. An all-white population found only in the Caribbean and southern Florida was once treated as a separate species and known as the great white heron. Thanks for visiting.

Hello Muhammad Shaukat,
A very good presentation of the Blue Heron in a semi sneak pose. Appears to have something wrapped around the tip of its bill. Nicely focused and displaying beautiful color tones. I love the reflection in the water. Great shot!!

Hello Muhamad,
Thanks for visiting my gallery. As I wrote to some members of TN, I was in a very short holiday in Danube Delta in my country. River Danube has a wonderful delta before entering in the Black See.
The Blue Heron is missing from this delta....I meet only four species of herons.....
This blue heron is well captured from close range with spectacular details.

Hello Muhammad,
Nice presentation of this Blue Heron with prey. Sharpness is not the best, but beautiful natural colors and a fine composition. Do you use a tripod or monopod?

Hi Muhammad,

I like the reflections and the ripples on the water. The point of view is showing the details of the Great Blue Heron. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice dya.


Ciao Muhammad, great capture of lovely Blue Heron with fantastic reflections, wonderful natural colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

I like this POV and the way Heron approaching diagonally. Nice natural habitat photograph.
Thanks and regards,
