Whether the subject is an Egret,a Crane or a Heron,I find that they are usually in a pose similar to this one,searching for food.

Those birds have more patience that I do, I saw one holding its position for a long time until a prey swam by. Nicely captured with good details. Well done, tfs.

Hi, Ronald. I have a similar subject today. Lovely photo and a nice portrait with subtle reflections and contrast. Nice exposure, good sharpness and composition. Cheers

I dont know why I'm feeling sad for this bird, am sure all is well.
Great use of colour and light contrasts.

Hi Ron,
the lighting here is very good and the eye is nice and sharp.The blackness of the water makes it look like oil

Hi Ron...very pretty shot...excellent light and tones..good work.


Hello Ron

Tack sharp. Almost looks as if the bird is stuck. Nice capture in the darks mud. Creates natural hard contrast. Nice


Great catch. The almost unassuming watchfulness of the bird shows a deceitful shrewdness that some animals are able to display to procure their next meal.
