What a hugely long neck! It looks way too big for its body :-)
I like the warm lighting in this shot and the way all the branches are highlighted with "gold".
Sharp and crisp.
Original POV.
Well done Sky,

Hi Sky,
Splendid shot of this Tiger Heron with such amazing details and colours on its plumage. That neck is just awesome and seems so different and interesting - surely looks like tiger stripes. The BG looks fabulous and gives a creative effect with the blue sky forming a nice base. Excellent POV and the composition is top-class. Kudos.

Hello Sky,
This one is having a good stretch - the long neck is amazing! It's a very beautiful Heron and very well captured up in the tree. Beautiful light and lovely colours. I wonder what he's spotted up there? Well done!
Many thanks, Ulla
