Taken in Jacques Cartier Park, Quebec Canada with Sigma 50-500EX Lens at 400mm, 1 sec, F6.7 using Fuji Velvia 50, tripod and polarizer. Which one is stronger this one or my post from yesterday entitled "Out of Reach"

Fabulous imagery, Patrick!

I think this one is stronger ... while yesterday's is a more intimate view of the Heron, this one places him in a more prominent role - "master of the surf", rather than just coexisting with it. Just MHO, of course.

Very nice images, both.
