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

Bojan Bencic level-fanatic 7/1/2012 4:05:18 AM

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

Karen E. Michaels level-fanatic 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

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

Monnie Ryan level-fanatic 7/1/2012 5:21:56 AM

Perfectly beautiful, and perfect for TKW Day! #10208686

Linda Sandbo level-fanatic 7/1/2012 5:42:28 AM

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

Mary K. Robison level-fanatic 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 level-fanatic 7/1/2012 6:23:55 AM

Outstanding comp and story telling, Jeff, unique and beautiful capture!

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
