I was spooking him so he flew off, I can never quite believe the sound of the Herons wings against the air as they launch.

Excellent Focus!

Beautiful wing spread. Good timing.

Excellent shot - composition, timing and post-processing are perfect. You managed to retain detail in the bird despite the very bright background. I think using the flash (fill-flash) would have helped a bit.
