This is a wonderful piece of wildlife photography. The heron is very sharp and the BG thrown beautifully out of focus. The pose that the bird has adopted has given a lovely view of the different types of feathers. Framed very well indeed - TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann

What a beautiful pose! You framed the image with great skill by making sure the feathers on the left are included. Large apperture created nicely blurred background.

he is presenting his face so you can have it! Nice grey heron portrait in this dim . I like the collar feathers, and the big one on his head, meaning that it's the mating season.
