A heron with a pony tail. It is really flying in the breeze Elizabeth. It seems to be surveying the area. I like how it is outlined against the sky.

You are so terrific with these bird shots. We have blue herons around here also, but not as stunning a bird as you have captured. Awesome work.

I love the vantage point of this shot, it looks like you were sitting for this one. I really like the sky as the background for this long haired bird. :)

Spot on Composition Elizabeth! When we were at Dauphin Island I loved watching all the birds! They were neat. The way you positioned yourself so that this heron is against the blue of the sky makes for a better than average shot! The angle of the pier board is parallel with the ending line of the clouds. Again, a super neat detail!
Well done and to my favorites this shot goes!!
Thanks for sharing this with me :=)

How many times did your shutter open and close while this beautiful bird posed? Elizabeth, excellent detail and focus.

That would be the catch of a lifetime for me. I dream of getting a shot like this. That heron looks super against the sky, and it is in perfect focus. A great job, Elizabeth.

This one is really special! It looks like he is folding or unfolding his wings... preparatory to taking off because of the shutter click? Very nice composition, and I bet you didn't have much time to set up the shot at all. I think you should try to sell this one to a bird book...check the publishing companies!
