It's interesting to watch birds hunt and the techniques they use. The light is perfect showing of the beautiful and intricate plumage on this Black Heron.
Details are tac sharp and lovely composition.

Thanks for this lovely example of "canopy fishing". Lovely WS, too, to show us the bird itself. Excellent quality, as usual!
Have a pleasant evening,

I had never seen something like this before. Amazing technique.
The light was superb, sharpness and dof are quite good.

Lovely colorful composition with that nice water reflections. Excellent details. As usual a perfect image with amazing clarity and focus. I like the contrast against the green background.
The image in the workshop is also nice and interesting showing the method of fishing of this bird specie.
super mooie opname ,heel apart dat hij bleef staan kon je hem mooi nemen
Leuke compositie met de spiegeling in het water
kijk in je WORKSHOP van vroege vogels ik weet niet of je al gekeken had

Hi Peter,a very original way to take a grey heron,the pose is fantastic ,in effect looks like an umbrella,great timing and impressive sharpness too despite the distance,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano
I have seen this Black Heron's exceptional catching technique in NatGeo Wild. I like their quick wing movement.
Excellent reflection with beautiful light. Details on feathers are well visible.
But to me POV is the main thing here which reduced the impact of this Photograph's beauty. Although, it's a nice example of story telling photograph, but the main part 'Head and Neck', to me. Your WS photograph where Bird is moving into the frame with such majestic open wing pose, looks better to me.
Yes, it's my personal opinion. Just ignore it if you don't like.
Thanks for showing such beautiful 'Fishing Technique' photograph with informative NOTE,

What a neat shot of this Black Heron feeding in an umbrella-like pose. I have never seen this type of feeding behavior before, thanks for posting such an unusual image. Love it!!
