Thanks for you comment on the Blue Haron.

You are absolutely right the bird was just a second away to grab a frog I just mist it.

This picture is not only perfect from a technical point of view, but it is very powerful because the bird is on the left and suggests what is in the title.

Hey Fons, Great shot. Just goes to show all the long lenses and fancy cameras do make a difference in the right hands eh ;-) I have been trying to get a decent shot of these guys for over 20+ years to no avail. Lots of patience for Still Life/ Tabletop, not much for Herons. Again, great shot.

Thank you Randall , we have lots off Herons in the area. Just waiting on a little stream for 30 minutes will give you lots off changes to take pictures from them.
