Thats a really nice image - the mix of light and shade must have been a bit of a challenge.

Thanks for the multiple comments - busy week over, now to empty the inbox!

Great shot, love the header shot.

Tammy said...

Great capture Brian! Good thing the Greenie stepped out of the shadow; great lighting! Nice to see one so out in the open!

Linda said...

What a great shot! I am still waiting to see one in the wild. Dan photographed a pair at his sister's house in MO summer before this one, but they were in a tree and pretty hard to see. I never got to see them at all! This is a wonderful capture!

Catherine said...

What a beautiful specimen...

Nancy Claeys said...

Beautiful!

Elizabeth Edwards said...

Wow, awesome shot of the Green heron!

TexWisGirl said...

love that you caught him in step mode, but the way he slices right down the middle of dark and light makes this shot fascinating. perfection in timing and skill.

Roan said...

Wow Brian, you get some of the most detailed and spectacular bird shots I've ever seen! This one is no exception... Thanks for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #48!

Great close up!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Lori said...

Oh love this Brian, you got so close!

Carletta said...

Beautiful capture of the heron!
Was he practicing dance steps to Me and My Shadow? :)

MTWaggin said...

He looks to be up on a walkway? Those little guys are really cute and love the yellow legs.

Tombstone Livestock said...

Such great detail, love the clean, clear, crisp shot and his (her?) shadow.

Danielle said...

Green Herons are just so photogenic...this is a beautiful shot...especially with the colorful eyes.

Pamela Gordon said...

I like the different lines in this photo - the horizontal boards and the slanted lines in the bird. Great shot!

Andee said...

Great shot. I love how the shadow lines right up along the bird, so cool.

Grandma C's Place said...

Cute bird. I love how he is so interested in something just out of view.

Deanna said...

Great clarity in your beautiful capture!!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Perfection!!!

You even got him in mid-step. I think it's striking how the right side of the photo is dark and the left side is light, with the bird's shadow casting that narrow strip of darkness. Beautifully done!

That's a new one for me. Can't say I've seen one. With that foot in mid air, it looks like its sneakin up on something. Did you get a picture of my sweet BIG Red at the football game?

Anni said...

Oh this must be the Green Heron that you've posted photos of before. I love the Green legs.
Wonderful shot, the shadow is fabulous.

barbara l. hale said...

He's a cool dude!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Wonderful, defined drama of stillness in the bird's body language and shadow!
