I really like the stark contrast of the sharp subject against a very muted background. Nice image!

Unbelievably fantastic image and details, Michael. Went through that area on the way back from New York. Heard they have eagles nesting in the park there.

Michael - Great Heron shot! Those birds freak me out when they perch high in a tree and I don't notice them until they come out of nowhere. - Mike
