[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot was made just outside the small town of Uriyoung, about 2 hours south of Daegu. I learned of it from another Trek Earth member who took me to this magical place. On this one hill side there were hundreds of nests and because of the shape of the hill the photographer is on the same level as the nests. There is a good distance horizontally and the birds don't seem to be bothered by our presence.

At the time this shot was taken the birds had not yet fledged.

Lovely colors and great POV. A shame that you couldn't get a clearer shot of them both. Nice composition, though. Good job getting the eyes of both of them.

TFS, Mish

Nice capture, especially the one chick peering through foilage. Good POV.

great subject

bye ;)

Hi Greg,
I thought I already critique this one but I obviously haven't!
A brilliant shot and like your other two is very sharp, detailed and bang-on in focus.
Well done,

p.s When will you be posting another photo?

This is a great shot of the herons captured at the right moment.
