Yesterday I came back from a week birding and shooting in Florida. For me, most species are quite exotic, and I concentrated in water- and shorebirds. This is one of my favourite shots of the Tri-colored Heron hunting. Thanks for viewing, Cheers, Hans

Great pose. Nice light on the heron and the background and water complement the heron well.

Gorgeous light, Hans. I love the pose you caught, and your usual low angle did a fine job of accenting it. A lovely and lively image.
