Excellent shot of a beautiful bird! You captured him perfectly. The lighting is great, along with an uncluttered background, which for me, is not always so easy to do.

Brian, I always think your heron shots are the best, and then you take it up another notch. Fantastic shot; is there a book in the offing?
