The Great Blue Heron hunts the tidepools at MacKerricher State Park, seemingly oblivious to the crashing waves in front of it. :)

Your blue heron photo collection is very nice.
I like the "calm amidst the action" mood of this photo.

hi feather!
not perfect quality but i
like this one very mouch
good composition and mighty with
the craching waves front of the
great shot!

Hello Feather,
A different image you presented us.
I like POV and details on the bird.
About the effect of the waves and water as the background, personally I think it would be better a narrow deep of field in order to make the background even more out of focus.
Well done, thanks for share and best regards,

Hi Feather,
Super composition and colors, a little soft on focus, but I like the feeling i get, fresh salty air.

Excellente photo!

Very nice shot of the Blue Heron, the water effect is great, nice colors. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Feather, very nicely done with great colour and composition. The action of the waves and total disregard of this action by the heron is great. It's obviously a bird on a mission.

Thanks, John

Salut Feather
C'est une très Jolie composition pour cet élégant pêcheur ! Sa pose et son environnement sont beaux.Impressionnant de le voir regarder ces éclaboussures d'eau.
Compliments et merci pour le partage....JP

Hi Feather,

there's a lot of motion captured in this shot, and i really like the light too...



gorgeous color combination!

Dear Lisa,
A great action shot with a story to tell!

The boiling water below the bird, and the animal with wide spread legs to secure the foot hold: incredibly interesting.

I wonder if eventually the Heron caught something?!?

I love the natural colours!!

This is true photo reportage and rare on TrekNature! The more the pity only 10 members took pen to paper...

I really hope - you will change your mind - and poste some more photos.
Have a good week
Greetings from South Africa
