Great Billed Heron (Ardea Sumatrana)

By John_Frid  
I'm not 100% sure, but I think this is a Great Billed Heron. If not then please let me know.

As with yesterday's Kingfisher it was taken from a boat on the Daintree river.

The black stripes on the bill are actually shadows from some overhanging branches. Should I try to clone these out or leave them in?

Thanks for looking.

Hi John,
I think I would clone them out. But either way it'sa good shot. Smile

A great image. I think it would be worthwhile cloning out the shadows. Smile

I suppose for the sake of accuracy you could clone them out but I reckon they look quite fetching and they make this image truly unique. How many people will have an image with this detail. Great capture.
