[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My last posting was the dancing herons, as you can see the story goes on, the herons flew off after the dancing. I followed them and a short time later they came down in the water. It was spectacular to see. I know that it is not really a good shot but it is the best I could do. Because it happens all very quickly and I was not prepared.
I still hope you like it.

Thanks for looking

It is still a lovely photo for all that it was taken "on the fly" so to speak, when you were unprepared. I very much like the way the wings are set and it's amazing to see the head of one surrounded by the beak of the other. A rare capture indeed, and well presented. Good color, contrast and a nicely composed. TFS
