Wow, it's almost as if this Heron is made or carved from stone, the detail and coloration of its feathers. What a great pose against a near perfect dof!

majestic art ... kudos
@ 2011-04-08 11:24:02
Lovely bird, well separated from the background with DoF. Perhaps a bit oversaturated, but that adds to the impact.

Es de gran belleza...
Como siempre muchas felicidades.

I know only gray herons here but I recognize the style ! Something prehistoric about them and you caught that well here, John.

Wow beautiful bird! Nice close up too!
@ 2011-04-09 10:28:42
Looks like one of those thats really graceful in the air!
@ 2011-04-09 12:07:36
What an amazing shot! You must have been fairly close. The detail in this is just fantastic and I love the blue and gold colors. The pose is wonderful - that large body and wingspread over those spindly legs - it seems so improbable and yet you have captured this bird looking strong and graceful.

John, you should do birding more. You capture such a great action moments. I don't know much about HDR, but it cannot be that easy when comes to birds. Excellent, and thanks, I love bird photos. Anna :)

About "comment flood protection". Three minutes is a long time for someone who looks at the photos first and then comes back to comment on them. I tried that one time on my site and people did nothing but complain. Better solution is a better spam filter.
Image is good...I've tried commenting on it twice already, though.
