As we were driving through the refuge, Ellie spotted this Great Blue Heron in the wetlands. The heron is my totem.
Very sharp! :)

Lovely bird, lovely composition, excellent shot :)
19 Feb 2010 5:41am
Wonderful light on the background and an interesting pose of the bird :)
19 Feb 2010 6:16am
Nice how the reflection has blurry and sharp areas :)
Marvelous. I like that his 'beard' feathers have a similar texture to the grasses beyond. And he reflects so nicely in the water. A splendid image !
19 Feb 2010 6:30am
love the color n texture of the grass n it made a great backdrop to bring out the subject. again, the sharpness of ur photos r incredible
19 Feb 2010 6:40am

Splendide image! Superbe environ naturel! J'aime beaucoup!

Good capture, funny looking bird is the heron. Always looks as though it has hunched and bunched shoulders.

Magnificent capture. A perfect shot!

Isn't it wild how the great blues look gray? I took several shots of one at a preserve and most of them were gray until I got around to a certain angle and the blue just popped. Well taken photo here Jack. You have good detail throughout and it has an overall warm feeling to it and the fresh scent of fall.
19 Feb 2010 4:14pm
Nice picture. I like it
19 Feb 2010 4:27pm
Utterly beautiful, Jack, with the reflection and the cover of the tall grass
19 Feb 2010 4:36pm
The background is gorgeous, and it reflects a wonderful, beautiful and great photo, jack!
19 Feb 2010 4:42pm

19 Feb 2010 6:21pm
Wonderful reflexion of this bird, love light.
19 Feb 2010 6:47pm
Brilliant shot, so sharp and detailed!
The heron is posing like a schoolteacher..;-))))
19 Feb 2010 8:08pm
Beautiful reflections! Bird and stump almost seem related. Similarly grim and craggy looking, surrounded by the beauty of the grasses.
19 Feb 2010 8:31pm
Wonderful capture, Jack ... good eyes, Ellie!
19 Feb 2010 9:14pm
Very magestic bird, the Heron. You caught him overlooking his kingdom. Great shot Jack, nice work on the composition.
19 Feb 2010 11:16pm
Cool heron, and nice environment too.
19 Feb 2010 11:37pm
A striking resemblance : ] best...jerry
20 Feb 2010 12:05am
Great catch, with a great reflection.....they're just so regal looking.....well done!!
20 Feb 2010 12:09am
The tall grasses act as a nice contrasting background to highlight the heron's presence nicely. Great detail and tones captured here.
20 Feb 2010 12:27am
Congratulations. The comments above are spot-on. Amazing how seemingly complex a background/reflection can be so pleasing in such a simple, quiet photo. Love it.
20 Feb 2010 12:51am
Gorgeous shot. Love the colors and reflections.
20 Feb 2010 1:48am
This is a spectacular photograph! I love the beautiful golden light- but my words seem flat compared to how I feel looking at this!
20 Feb 2010 2:43am
I was already going, "wow" and then the heron came into view and then the reflection. Wow again. Great shot!

just 5 stars!!!
20 Feb 2010 8:20am
Great capture. I've always wanted to get a shot of one of these guys. Guess I need to buy a telephoto. Like others said, I really like the reflection.
20 Feb 2010 4:29pm
faboulous! In a way these birds are funny...They looks like old grumpy persons...
20 Feb 2010 4:46pm
This is a great composition Jack. The beautiful background and the mirroreffect in the water makes this photo great!
20 Feb 2010 9:31pm
I love the reflection in the water.
21 Feb 2010 2:17am
Amazing shot. Very beautiful.
21 Feb 2010 3:14am
I love herons - whatever they do they look great -. and sometimes like a clothes stand with a forgotten jacket.... - and in this picture with the warm reef background and the soft and silky reflection he looks great and pensive.
21 Feb 2010 11:18am
Strong image of a distinctive bird - really like this one!
21 Feb 2010 10:01pm

25 Feb 2010 5:57pm
This is masterpiece quality, one to be proud of! I'm very fond of these hirsute herons, they have such an atmosphere of <Wise Men>, as if always meditating on deep topics!
