Great close up image showing the plumage well. I agree the bits of cloud add to the picture, good composition and unusual POV as they are usually close or in the water.

Great capture, I have never been able to get this close. Love the detail of the eye.
This is an excellent shot, but it seems too contrasty to me. I think I would try using Photoshop to lighten the shadows a bit. Gary

Pretty close but I think these birds are great indeed. I know the size of the Goliath heron.
Nice compo and blue sky.
The sharpening shouldn't be sharper.
Nice colors throughout the shot.

A superb close portrait of a Great Blue Heron!
The composition of the head and the curved neck against the blue sky is great and the sharpness in the side lighting excellent.
Very nice to view and thanks for posting this.
