I was "hunting" flamingoes in the camargue a few years back when i found this one. The blackish swampwater gave a perfect reflection, much better picture then most of the flamingo shots that day

Hello Jeroen,
I first wondered what this was when I saw the thumbnail! Having a closer look I see a fabulous capture of a beautiful Heron with a crystal clear reflection in the water! It looks really great against the dark brown water!
TFS and have a nice weekend, Ulla

Hallo Jereoen,
Wat prachtig zeg. Deze reflectie is echt perfect. Schitterende kleuren zo in en tegen het donkere water. Uitstekende scherpte en compositie.
Goed weekend verder,

I thought for make a good foto is necessary a good eye and a good lens. I can see from this picture, is nesessary a boat too. :)
It's perfect. Maybe the crop is too narrow?

Hi Jeroen. A first class picture of the Heron with aa excelent refection in the dark water. Great detail and such natural colours. well done TFS.
Nick..

Salut Jéroen,

Qualité de la photographie, magnifique composé esprit, en sachant très bien l'utilisation de la symétrie de réflexion. Je vous félicite également pour l'excellente utilisation de l'éclairage disponible. Les jours pluvieux et nuageux sont très difficiles à manipuler et vous avez atteint un excellent niveau de stress dans le plumage de l'oiseau. Très bien fait. Salutations!

perfect artistic pic, TFS Ori

Hi Jeroen

A very beautiful study of this beautiful heron.
Perfect sharpness and reflection, great work.

Hello Jeroen
Nice shot is very colorful and natural.
The composition is lovely and sharpness.
Congratulations
Nilson

Wonderful reflection! the stillness in the water indicates this guy is a delicate mover over the water or had remained still for a long time

Hi Jeroen,
Brilliant pose. Excellent composition. Great details. The background is perfect to enhance the beauty of the bird (neutral and from a distinctive color)
The reflection is surely a plus.

Hi Jeroen,
I am in awl of your work. This is an excellent picture. You could turn the picture upside down and not hardly tell which side was up. Good lighting and POV.
Gary

This is a truly unusual picture of this much-photographed species. Good color and sharpness as well!
