Hello friends, this is at the same place as my 2 previous photos,
it is at the river Rivière des Prairies separating the island (city)
of Montréal from the island (city) of Laval where I live.
I was on the side of Montréal.

1/4000s f/8.0 ISO1000 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


« Whether poised at a river bend or cruising the coastline with slow,
deep wingbeats, the Great Blue Heron is a majestic sight. This stately
heron with its subtle blue-gray plumage often stands motionless as
it scans for prey or wades belly deep with long, deliberate steps.

They may move slowly, but Great Blue Herons can strike like
lightning to grab a fish or snap up a gopher. In flight, look
for this widespread heron’s tucked-in neck and long legs
trailing out behind. »

A grounded bird this time instead of the usual flying one, Asbed.
I like the ambience here with the Heron totally focused on the rover for a catch. Very charming!
Thanks and regards.

Hi Asbed,magnificent composition showing us the heron ready to fish in this spectacular scenery,i like pics like that,a great pleasure for my eyes,and the quality is another time the best as possible.Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

bonsoir Asbed
excellente scene avec ce héron qui guête l'eau en vue d'une proie,
l'oiseau est bien detaillé et capturé dans un beau décor
Passe un bon dimanche

Excellent shot showing the bird acting naturally in a typical setting for it to fish in. Much more interesting to see it like this.
