Hi Alan,
I like these type of photos where you show more than only the animal but also the area it is in. I believe it can provide more information to the photo. Yours is even an impressive one, where the huge rocks and rough river add great drama.

Hi Alan,

Thanks for sharing,

Hello Alan,
Very attractive composition showing not only the heron, but the habitat also. The wave action brings some movement into the frame and the detail and DOF is great. Beautiful natural colors and perfectly exposed. Well done!!

Hi Alan,

What a very nice late afternoon image with fabulous colours, good strong composition with the Heron as your focal point, nice and sharp with impressive details, good work and well done,
Best regards Alan and have a nice evening,
