Hi Joshua,
Very nice shot of this Heron. Hope you don't mind the correction but this is a Yellow-crowned Night Heron adult.
You really managed a fine composition here. The plant framing is very nice. The fine POV, pose, and lighting shows the bird well and it's lovely plumage. It could be sharper and I will post a work shop showing what I did to sharpen. tfs Richard

You did a nice job at composing this shot. Very pretty bird with beautiful plumage. I like the natural colours and good lighting you've captured.
I must agree with Richard as far as the sharpness, his workshop photo adds that extra little touch.

Richard is right. A beautiful Yellow Crowned Night Heron. Nice in it's environment. Well done!
Just for your reference - here's a Little Blue Heron:

Cheers, Klaus

Hi Joshua,
a nice image of this pretty bird!
I love the reflections on the water.
Good detail and clarity.
Richard has shown really well how a little bit of sharpening will improve a photo drastically!
Very nice composition.
Great colours.
Good to see you shoot animals as well :-)
Cheers mate,


It's a good shot of the heron in its natural environment. Good detail and sharpness. Nice water background with lots of light and reflection.
