With the nice weather at the moment you see herons a lot, but I never saw two herons close together so I think that I was lucky it looks like they were dancing.
They also make a lot of noise.
Great to see.
Thanks for looking

Hi Vivian.
Your shot is simply charm. Amazing pictured scene and moment. The poses of the herons are wonderful as well as their reproduction. Excellent details and vivid colours, nice lighting, exposure and contrast of the picture. The title is great too. My compliments and best regards.

Hello Vivian,
What a wonderful capture. It's not often you have the chance to see the Grey Heron behaving like this! They look really beautiful with their huge wings spread out. Excellent sharpness and nice colours. I like your composition very much!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Vivian

Another charming capture from you!
Timing here was really the key and you nailed it on this one! The poses of these two lovely herons are terrific the title sure fits ;)
I really like to see the first one with its wings so widely opened and with such great details on the feathers.
The vegetation from the FG is a bit distracting, but i guess there was simply nothing you could do about that...in fact it actually might have given you a little camouflage to get closer :)
The exposure is nicely maneged, the POV is excellent and the tones are lovely everywhere.

Bravo and TFS

That's a fantastic moment, Vivian,
I love this pretty birds in this pose so much, you were lucky to see such a moment, bye

Hi Vivian,
The wings look beautiful! Very good timing. TFS

A veritable symphony of movement here, Vivian.
A well captured moment in which the birds actually seem to be waltzing on some mystical music of nature.
Well done and TFS.
