Two Great Blue Herons in breeding plumage all wrapped up in love for each other.

Cover of National Wildlife Magazine Jan 2015
NWF only allows extremely limited processing. They get the RAW file to check.

I just noticed, I as in a hurry to upload. I should have cropped a sliver off the top and the side for better balance.

If birds could only talk and we could hear...I can only imagine what they would be saying.
Could not be more a more beautiful capture

Incredible shot of these birds.

I see that NWF limits your processing. Would they allow you to play with the exposure and contrast to get dramatic whites and blacks in the plumage? That change alone might bring this from a 3 to 4 in my eyes.
