Takes the biscuit Ron. The Guest Editor really saying what they like about this fine capture.
They failed to say great timing, exposure and detail and dof spot on.
So thought i'd say it as it makes sense to comment on the photo rather than something completely different.
Great morning, next time we'll get that dam Kingfisher hopefully

So Moss has saved me from a critique--- Seeing the tongue gives the heron a whole new personality!

Wonderful study of a Grey heron and I very much admire the dropped shadow framing, very stylish and fully compliments the image.

A terrific shot of the heron Ron, the detail in the plumage is sublime and it is most unusual to see him/her with tongue hanging out.

A fine image of a Heron Ron. I don't seem able to catch one these days
Great shot Ron. Very good detail.

I do think that you have one of the very best "wildlife" portfolios on here..your "love in the mist" permanantly stays in the mind.
