What a scruffy looking beast, Jeff! Looks as tho he has a multitude of coloured feathers as well. Lovely capture1 #1472282

Great capture of this beauty, Jeff. Excellent composition. #10208586

Karen E. Michaels 7/1/2012 4:33:11 AM

He is getting ready for a quick pounce.
Indeed, the composition is excellent; it adds depth to the piece. #10208620

OUTSTANDING STALKING CAPTURE
I totally enjoy watching these big birds hunt . The fact that they will spear ANYTHING w/that deadly bill that they think they can swallow makes them even more interesting.

They are cool to watch. Ours are a bit skittish, but there's one I can get within shooting distance. #10208666

Linda Sandbo 7/1/2012 5:42:28 AM

Great shot!!!! and I guess I'll ask.. what does TKW represent???????? #10208722

Mary K. Robison 7/1/2012 6:19:44 AM

Jeff, I've never seen a heron stalking in "deep" water until now. Guess this one's intense stare is locking onto a fish very close to him. That long neck must come in handy!
BTW, beautiful colors, and great composition. #10208762

Deborah C. Lewinson 7/1/2012 6:23:55 AM

Really unique view and capture, Jeff. I was watching an educational video about GBHs yesterday. They weight (surprisingly) only 5 to 8 pounds and can easily eat their weight every day. #10209306

Joannie M. Bertucci 7/2/2012 5:13:09 PM

Great capture Jeff and I can see why he can catch more fish than man...his eyes are sharp, his beak is sharp and he stands in the water on sharp talons...man can't beat that! :-) #10211331
