It's probably his ability to stay still for the photo that makes him a good fisherman. You've caught him just right through the arch.
I am very very new to all this - so the Heron is a wonderful beginners model. He stayed so still I could extend the shutter speed and get some flow in the water too. If you could hire him out for photo shoots I'd say he would be fairly rich :)
Wonderful composition, beautiful water movement and reflections,

friendly greetings, Urszula.
Thank you Urszula
I am very honoured !!! :)
Very best wishes from Ireland
This is certainly a great series starring the proud and self confident heron. On a number of different occassions I experienced the same thing as you've already noticed. Here I liked the diagonal perspective and the effect of water flow, you've excellently captured. Thanks and best wishes, Suleyman.
Thank you Suleyman
Yeah the Heron does make a great beginner subject
I am delighted you spotted these and many thanks for your very kind comments
Oh, from other side Dean? Same heron? Nice point of view again..
Hi Manoo - no its the same side just a little further down the bank
Many thanks for your very kind comments
So many things I love about this scene! Brilliant shot! Y*. I like your title too. No good asking him what bait he uses!
Best wishes, Brian.
Very warm welcome return - and its nice that someone still pays any interest to my older pages - thankyou.
I'm especially pleased you find this one out - its one of my favourites as its probably the first picture I would not have been able to take without a dslr - not without losing the motion from the water
Thanks, Dean. Yes, that's one of the things I like - the contrast of rushing and still water. Re. Herons, have you noticed there is an invisible line. They seem happy with your presence so you think, "I'll get a bit closer". So you move forward quietly and slowly - but as soon as you go just 1cm over that line he's off!
