[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Great Blue Herons (Ardea herodias) on their nest at the Wakodahatchee Wetlands, a filter marsh in Delray Beach, FL.

Cropped from 2272 x 1720 for composition and detail. There's some noise, but I wasn't able to filter it without losing a lot of texture. Brightness and contrast increased 25%. I've got some great shots of these birds fighting off an intruding Great Blue, but the exposures suck.

Nice shot Bill. The image appears to have a blue hue to it. looks a little odd. The subjects on the other hand are very nicely composed. The whites look good. Thanks

Congratulation .... c'est superbe , Bravo

Hello Bill! You are very lucky to live in an area where you can find the Herons nesting! Very nice composition, they are in a very regal pose, love the feathering! Lovely detail and very good DOF. Thanks, Linda
