Blue Heron looking over his favorite fishing grounds. Took a lot of patience on my part for this....less patience than he has. I looked down to do another adjustment for some more shots and BOOM..He was in flight and gone once again.

You don't need any lessons from me. I would just confuse you with my ignorance. LOL. Fantastic shot, Paul. Those are even real reflection, too, are they not?

An excellent capture of the Heron Paul. I luv the reflections and clarity in this image. I have a folding stool i use when i'm trying to get a shot of these birds. If you sit and wait they usually return. Nice work, S&F

Great capture. Is this one of those "mirror effect" jobies or the real thing? I like it.

A great one Opie. I am impressed with how fast you have become such a great photographer. It has to be a natural gift. This is the best of the lot I think.

He's beautifully sharp, the colours are strong without oversaturation, the off centred comp is spot on and ladderlike pattern of the tree he's standing on has lovely geometry as well. Great shot Paul.

Beautiful reflections, Paul. You're luckier than I. I can't even get them to land. In fact, I never see them at all! The reflected image makes such pretty patterns with it's copy on the bank. So pretty.

Fantastic reflections! I like that you can see more of the tree and surrounding in the mirror image. Wonderfully composed. Saved!

A wonderful shot of this beautiful bird!! You were very fortunate that it was still long enough for you to get this fantastic shot. A keeper for me, thanks.
