Super shot Yves. Great focus on the Heron and I like the angle you captured him at. It really does show his colours and wingspan off nicely. You have some nice reflections happening in the water as well. Looks like it was a beautiful day.

Thank you Debra. This summer I discover the pay back of knowing the subject, its usual reaction and its surrounding, The bird decide for the pose, Mother Nature decide for the colours and water reflections and I am responsible to see the opportunity and manipulate the complex camera. All together we did a good job this summer.

King of the gliders. The wingspan of that bird is so well fit to complement the vastness of the landscape. I was so glad that its deep blue colour was nicely showing. It is not always the case.
