[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This white heron was sitting near the bridges over the River Arno passing through the centre of Florence, Tuscany. I was leaning on the wall along the riverside, lining up the bridge for a photograph when this elegant bird landed nearby. WS shows where these birds live.

PS Unsure of ID, please advise if not a white heron.

Hi Murray,

The mirror effect on the water is and asset to the composition. The point of bview is allowing me to see the details and colors of the great white heron. It is well framed. The colors are enhanced by the good luminosity. have a nice day.


A very fine composition with an excellent framing.
Best wishes,

Hi Murray.
Nice shot of elegant bird. I welcome attractive composition and presence of original image and mirror reflection of the bird in the frame. Exposure of the image as well as colours are very delicate and details of the image are excellent too. Warm greetings and best regards.
