Beautiful job, Joe! The soft greys of the bird, floating above that glowing green foliage, and the way both are spot-lit against the subdued background, combine to lift this image out of the ordinary. The pose of the bird and your composition are spot-on. Well done!

Thank you very much Chris! This series came out beautiful and for the same reasons you gave; it was an incredible encounter. the way the Sunlight came in and was only landing on his log was remarkable.

Great job Joe. The shaded backdrop really makes the Heron pop - wonderful lighting!

Thank you Alan! No fancy editing, the light really was fairly dramatic with the Heron standing in a column of Sunlight. Just beautiful.


Thank you!
