    Beautiful capture. And that is amazing bokeh you got! What lens did you use to capture this? Thanks for sharing!

    Oh man, you've gotta love it when a 'leggy model' comes right up to you, preens, and practically begs to have a picture taken. Lucky you!

    Gorgeous detail in the feathers and eye. Awesome shot

    I love this one. I'm a heron fancier and have never seen a tricolor in the wild. Did you have to pay a modelling fee?

    Thanks, and no, no modelling fee. This one worked for free!
