Would a Martim fisherman be? He was in the fall of the dam of Piraju (SP) - http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piraju - waiting for fish that sought the stairway to go up Rio Paranapanema (http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rio_Paranapanema)

In agreement with the critics this is one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_Herons (TKS)

Hello Jose,
That's a long time ago! How nice to see a new posting after so many years.
Beautiful photo of this Night Heron in good sharpness and an excellent composition. Attractive pose with eye contact.

Hi Jose,a very good pic of this heron,excellent exposure for the best white of plumage and perfect colors too,just a bit soft the details.Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

hi Jose,
this is a lovely bird! such classical B/W combination with this strikingly red eyes! that's called class. mother Nature has taste, indeed :)
a nice capture, good clarity.. just a little more sharpness was required.
but still a good one. enough to make you stop and see.

Blurred BG is usually good, but I think the falls in the BG here would have been a plus. Maybe increasing the numerical value of the F stop to say F/16 and supplementing the SS may have achieved the needed DOF to show both the bird in focus and the falls also?! Lovely image as is, but focus could have been more exact or camera stabilized more. Definitely caught the distinct red eye! TFS.

This is a striking bird with its red eye and black and white feathers and you have captured it beautifully. The point of view and the composition is just great. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
