Heard this Heron before I saw him, swung camera up..hand held
this is what we have
...there were many of them in the Flamingo Park
in the Camargue. but was getting dark

What can I say but a huge Thank you to everyone who gave me their awards...thank you!

Now go take a look at the version I have put up so you can see the original photo...last image of stallions..
would you have still given your award I wonder?..maybe you would be feeling proud with me as I am
that I managed to do that!

Nice in flight capture. I love the way that their legs dangle behind them in flight.

Showing excellent camera skills, Lillian. Did you clone out the rope and person in this one as well? TongueGrinGrinGrin A nifty piece of processing (on your previous).

I had a look at your original version and all I can say is you grabbed every bit of detail and light into your rework, but in know way did you change the atmosphere of the shot from the camera............that is what I call quality processing. Well done Lillian.
This heron shot is a beauty........spot on detail

The heron in flight is very nice, Lillian, love the angle and the dangly feet.

I had a look at your previous V2 and can only say well done, and it was certainly worth the effort.

What a wing span the Heron has, with extra-long legs trailing behind.
Well done for this one, Lillian; all things considered, you did very well to capture it.

A distinctive noise they make in flight, more elegant in flight than on the ground at times.

They're very slim and sleek looking, aren't they? And seeing them in flight like this really shows off how large their wings are. Excellent capture, Lillian, well done! Wink

A big wing span to get in shot, in flight - tried my hand at birds of prey at the weekend, got some fantastic shots of the blue sky with just a wing tip in viewSad
A quick reaction on your part getting such a super shot.
