[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Even though we did many excursions on our trip, Nature was not far from the door step.
This picture was taken on an short stroll down the beach.

An abundance of birds and other wildlife could be found around the hotel.
Herons along with the ibises, egrets, and bitterns are of the Coconiformes family with about 25 representatives in Costa Rica.

Hi Sky,
Lovely action shot. A great morning to see such beautiful sight. Sharp and well composed image. Very well done and tfs.

Great timing in this shot of the flying bird, Sky.
You have got the eye of this bird with catch-light in it. The blurred BG of water makes the shot all the more attractive.

Nice inflight Sky, and you even included a background with my yacht in there! ;-}}
Good detail, color, and exposure, with plenty of space for your bird to fly into :)
Have a great weekend,

What an excellent shot Sky!
You have captured this flying Heron very well.
There's a real sense of speed from the movement in the wings and BG.
Sharp and crisp.
Nice colours too.
Well done!
