    Well, there aren't too many pictures to take, but I came away with these two :)

    Vary nice shots! I think the heron in the first one is a Yellow-crowned Night Heron (not really sure why whoever named it chose the 'Yellow-crowned' part, though, as they don't have all that much yellow on their crown :)).

    I have to preface this by saying that I have now seen a few of your posts and I am always VERY impressed with the shots your taking, the quality and composition especially. I like the crane shot in this series, nice color saturation.

    You are completely right, this is the Yellow-crowned Night Heron. I just didn't get a shot of their plumage (which is yellow) thanks for the correction. :)

    These are both wonderful. I love the colors in and the title of Warmth. I'm so impressed.

    Wow.
    Really impressive shots.

    I checked out your Deviations and they are really impressive also.

    I just started putting my deviant site together but I'm a little rough on how to get things arranged on there.


    Good work.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Too bad I missed so many photos in those few days during which I couldn't be around. I would almost have missed these ones, too, which would have been too bad.
    Clarinet, your photography is great - in general! These two are no exception! I like that heron. I like herons, anyway, and we don't see them often in my country. I like that you captured this one mid-step, watching your every movement critically. Great.
