Had some luck to get a picture of these two herons, with both in focus, because there was a certain distance between them. 1/250, f/8, iso 800

Nice shot Anders. It's framed perfectly and as you say your focus kicked in on both birds. You even managed to get the rich colours of the birds come through. I like the amount of foreground and background you left as well. Nicely taken. Trevor

Hi Anders,
Yes indeed, great focus on both.
I really like the juxtaposition of these two herons in different poses.
They look so different in features and in size.
Both of them have an intense stare.
Nice composition of those two in the snow.
TFS. : )

Hi Anders,
Believe it or not, I remember one of Your superb bird shots from years ago, so I'm glad You're back to TN. Fantastic shot, great focus, sharpness and composition. Congrats and tfs.
Best regards from Hungary, László

Hej Anders
Cool presentation of this two gray herons resting on the ice. Yes, you get both of them in the focus with nice details. Well done.

Hej Anders,
A fine capture of two Grey Herons in two different poses taken from a great low POV. You did well to get both in fine focus and their colours against the snowy BG are excellent.
Composition is excellent too.
Thanks and best regards,

Hallo Anders
This is really beautiful! Not only for the perfect focus, but the different poses in which you captured these two are really great. Here in South Africa we are so used seeing these birds standing in the water, and the change of habitat is a pleasurable sight. The technical aspects of this image are of high standard and I can only but compliment you for fine camerawork. Indeed two beautiful friends with striking features that is well seen. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Anders,
very beautiful scene and very fine photo output!
keep photographing! TFS
