En route to a small village called Mukteshwar, Mark, my 10 year old nephew, and I passed Bhimtal, where I spotted a large number of these Herons by the lakeside.

Hello Goldy,
Thank you for your kind words on completing my third anniversary with TN!
An excellent capture of a Striated Heron
+: Sharpness, DOF, pose, POV, natural contrasting BG, composition (the central comp. works well as there is a lot of natural BG all round the heron), colours and lighting.
-: none, you used your S2 IS well!
Thanks again and all the best,

Hi L'il Bro Goldy,
A superb capture of this elegant heron from a great POV with ecxellent clarity and fine composition.
TFS and cheers,

Una curiosa fotografía Golgy; digo curiosa ya que mirada en conjunto es excelente en centraje, colores, etc, pero mirada en detalle se ven colores "pastosos" o algo difuminados.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

Hi L'il Brother,

Mark will remember outings like this for the rest of his life. How wonderful that he is learning a love of nature from you. I don't think I have seen a Striated Heron before. I love his face, eye and wings. The entire bird is lovely with beautiful colors and excellent details. A wonderful pose in a nice setting and very well composed.
