[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I shot this grey heron early in the morning while fishing in our small garden pond.
Working behind the window and curtains gave me the opportunity to observe him for a few minutes before he became aware of my movements.
This specimen seems to have been involved in some kind of a fight, as his crest is missing.
At least now I know where my fish have disappeared!

HY Frans!

Very nice catch of this grey bird. He eat all your fish? ;)
Yes, he maybe have a fight because of missing crest.
Nice collours and sharpness!
Well done and TFS!


hello Frans
Excellent photo with also an excellent point of view. Good details and colors. That aspect "unkempt" is something humorous. Also I think that the BG with different vegetation types and diffuse is perfect.
Thanks for sharing!!

Nice one ! I love herons :p

When I first saw the picture, I thought it was a young heron because of the hair on its head and its light colors, different from usual grey herons (i.e adults)

Well done !

very nice shot.
heron is well detailed.
