I was going through bird images looking for one to post instead of more landscapes. I came across this image of a Tricolored Heron. This was from a small local Wildlife Area where I used to live and was a not a common visitor to this small lake. Image taken in early evening with a 400mm f/4 DO lens @ f/4.5, 1/160 sec.
Superb detail Reed.
Thanks so much! Appreciate the feedback!
Good angle that allows you to see the feets through the water in the shade under the bird.
I was on an observation platform looking down at the heron! He flew in and waded up to the shoreline by the platform!
What a wonderful photo, Reed – I love seeing all those details, even the feet!
Thanks Eliza! It just flew in to where I was photographing, so I was able to get a few interesting images!
Lovely shot, Reed! We don’t see them here.
Thanks Belinda! We do not see too many here either! Just here & there!
That’s an excellent portrait.
Thanks Steve! They are fun to photograph!
Thanks so much Kathy!
Very crisp down to the feet in the water – nicely done and really like the chestnut highlights on this specimen.
Thanks so much! Appreciate your comment!
