Picked up this shot at a local wetlands yesterday.
Nice action shot and heron is nicely exposed and sharp.

" big bird!! i'll stay on the couch, thank you" - Georgie Beagle
Alexis - Thanks for the kind words. Getting off the couch is half the battle. We're lucky that the wetlands where I took the shot are close to the house.
Very nice, I like it.
The couch is the bane of my existence, especially on grey, rainy days!
Nice shot, and while the back/fore ground are a wee bit busy you did manage to frame him in the one spot where he fits perfectly!
Awesome pose on the bird and gotta love the foot action in the water.
Thanks Gordon. I appreciate the feedback.
Nick - Thanks for the feedback. I agree that both the back/fore ground are a bit busy. Unfortunately, that was just the nature of the setting. This heron was very skittish and I had to hike back in the woods to try to get some pictures where s/he was hanging out. I took some other shots that were sharp but were even busier. I think that this shot is saved a bit by the bird being on the move. It's been a chilly spring here in the DC area and there just wasn't much activity even though it was pretty warm the day I took the shot.
Thanks Dan. I think that the bird being on the move really makes the picture interesting.
