Nice Capture Hans. Great detail and excellent colors. The Great Blue herons we have here are very shy and hard to get a descent photo of.

Thanks Jim
I saw the top of the head 60ft from the road . It was standing reverse of this image with its head behind the twigs . After 10 minutes it turned around . I was hoping for a full height neck extension but it never happened in the 20 frames .
