|Great blue herons are the largest herons in North America. They stand approximately 60 cm tall and are 97 to 137 cm long. They weigh 2.1 to 2.5 kg. They have long, rounded wings, long bills that taper to a point at the end, and short tails. They also have very long necks and legs. The bills are a yellowish color and the legs are green. Great blue herons have gray upper bodies, and their necks are streaked with white, black and rust-brown. They have grey feathers on the back of their necks with chestnut colored feathers on their thighs. The males have a puffy plume of feathers behind their heads and also tend to be slightly larger than females. (Ferguson, 1998)|

I think the long grass looks great with this heron. Nice POV, lovely colours and good DOF

Very nice job, Juan.
I really like the composition.
That long neck and long beak really stand out against the blurred BG.
Great POV and DOF.
Colors and light are very natural.
TFS. : )
