Awesome capture Yves! I love the angle of this capture and how beautifully the heron stands out against that sky! That must have been quite a sight to see..

Thank you Heather. I mist you for a while. Pale blue sky with soft white clouds was the perfect fit. The heron had just the perfect pose for the shot. Dark leaves are doing the perfect crescent to let the heron stands out. No striking detail. just a pleasant impressive overal sighthing. It is one of those shots where I am convience that hazard can't be part of that and I believe mother nature put it there just for me to shoot.

Thank you Debra. Right now, your comments makes all the difference. Normaly I would close the season for the winter. But for you I may post a little more images. Have a good day.

You have a good winter Yves, I have been a little busy and unable to find time to get out with my camera. Stay safe and well.
