[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In natural unconfined habitat. They seem to be sharing the nest but I think one is actually standing guard while the other is sitting on the eggs. They look very apprehensive and not to be blamed ... it is not a bird park. Or maybe they are juveniles after all ... they just look so large.

Hello Neels.
Excellent capture of these Herons in natural surroundings. This is sharp with fine lighting and well composed.Regards Siggi

Hallo Neels
Thanks for sharing a bit of true nature by ways of this almost documentary photograph. Although the backlight is a bit disturbing for my own personal taste, one can still see the details of these two herons quite well and it is a pleasure to see these two in their nest. This is an image, different to the normal, which I find pleasant and I appreciate you for sharing it with us. Best regards.

Hello Neels,
Looks like you found a rookery similar to one we have here near my home. I love to go there in the spring and watch the adults build their nests and then raise their young.
Love the POV you have presented to us as they seem oblivious to you and what you are doing. Nice sharp focus and beautiful natural colors.
As far as the back lighting being to harsh... I say how can this be avoided in such a natural situation as this. I love it!!
