This is an excellent shot, and stands out even though this site is full of great blue heron pics. It could be said that the background sky is too pale and bland, but I think that works to highlight the colours and textures of the heron. The texture of its feathers are a little noisy - blown up just a little too much, perhaps. How about a note telling us how you captured this, etc.

Voici une excellente prise de vue pour cet oiseau que je n'aime pas beaucoup car il considére mon bassin comme son réfrigérateur ! Une netteté impeccable et un cadrage intéressant. Merci. Gérard

il a l'air vieux et sage ce héron! Très belle photo, mais c'est de valeur par-contre qu'il y ait trop de clarté à l'arrière, ça nous empêche de bien voir tous les détails.

Hi Shelley, the heron looks like an old man with a long beard! Great capture. I like your POV from under the bird. Well shown, thank you

Great capture of this magnificent bird. Too bad about the gray skies but you can't control the weather. Well seen!
