Hello Raja,
Again a wonderful close up of this heron. TFS

gorgeous bird, very successful portrait,
vivid colors, focus on eyes, fine detail ....

Hi Raja,
Amazing close-up, very deep ligth, very suitable crop and composition. I disagree a few whit the border frame, but it's a taste question and not down the global performance for this picture. TFS, Jesús
