The Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) is a large wading bird in the heron family Ardeidae, common near the shores of open water and in wetlands over most of North America and Central America as well as the Caribbean and the Galápagos Islands. It is a rare vagrant to Europe, with records from Spain, the Azores, England and the Netherlands. An all-white population found only in the Caribbean and southern Florida was once treated as a separate species and known as the Great White Heron. (From Wikipedia)

C'est très beau, une photo magnifique d'un héron en vol. L'ombre et le fond de l'image dans les tons bleus sont très bien réalisés.

Attractive candid of the Great Blue Heron gliding across the water and its reflection. A popular and photogenic bird in Northern California both at the ocean and inland waterways.
Thanks for sharing,

spesso riprendi gli uccelli e sempre con ottimi risultati.
In questa alla notevole sobrietà della composizione si unisce un panning fatto in maniera eccellente che pone a perfetto contrasto l'uccello con l'ambiente circostante.
Ottimi colori e nitidezza.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

a very elegant and delightful photo, a fleeting scene you captured very skillfully. You made the most of your point of view and got a rare (in my opinion) picture of a flying bird with only water as backdrop. There's superb sharpness, depth and sense of movement conveyed both by the bird and the water. I love the shifting ripples, luminosity, transparency and tones of the water. An excellent capture, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Very nicely captured bird. The front lit portion is looking great and the reflection captured is commendable. Great sharpness and contrast
