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. (From Wikipedia)

Bravo, have a nice day

una ottima cattura.
Molto bello lo sfondo che lo circonda che hai saputo evidenziare molto bene (credo) grazie all'uso intelligente del polarizzatore.
Nitidezza e brillantezza eccellente.
Ciao e buona domenica

Beautiful light here, Eleu, and the heron stands out brilliantly against the darker water. All of that grass in the water also gives it a fascinating texture, almost like brushstrokes. We occasionally get a blue heron near my house, but I haven't had the luck to capture one on film, and certainly not as well as you have here. Thanks!

This is a kind of romantic photos, beautiful scene, the heron in golden light and the water is dark blue, fantastic combination

A heron in a perfect profile and with a perfect background and superbly handled light. The contrasts almost makes the bird pop out of the picture. A very good photo.

this picture is truly beautiful and deserves loads of points. It is not only nicely captured bird but masterly planned composition and excellent framing. The seaweed in the water makes it look almost like some kind of fabric and delicate curve of the wave has been captured lovely.
Great quality and superb colors.

Excellent sharp shot of this heron on beautiful warm toned light. Wave pattern looks good too, those seaweeds add some nice extra details to the view.

A fine wildlife shot in its natural environment and the wonderful view of the bird in warm light as we get drawn right into it. Good natural tones, sharp in focus against deep colour of the background, what more the position is spot on to give the impact! Great capture, Congrats, TFS

The bird has been well placed in the 1/3 vertical axis to give a superb composition and it also takes up 2/3 of the horizontal axis which enhances the image further. Good sharpness and the diagonal shoreline improves the dynamism and perspective. Tfs!

Belle lumière de fin de journée sur le héron, netteté et couleurs comme le cadrage est magnifiques

Eleu, this is one of the biggest species of heron and your picture gives a good idea of the bird and its habitat, I like the golden light coming on it, regards

Just perfect, the light, the focus and the water in background. The wave and the plants on the water makes the photo really special!
