A very interesting photo, the heron is so sharp with the leaves etc. softened. Great shot.

I'll butt in with the Thanks Dianne since, lol, I was reluctant to give this shot to Bits. The only way I could get the shot was through the trees, but the red leaves made it worth it!

They do frame him nicely, Bits.

Hi Ritva - thanks for that! He was sure a patient model!

The heron's great, but the framing makes it special.

Hi Marilyn - thanks very much! I couldn't get to a clear spot to get a shot of him, so I decided to follow the adage 'When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.' Glad it seems to have worked. Cheers!

Thanks Bruce! They sure do - and it's so nice that they seem to be doing so well these days. I seem to see them everywhere!
