Beautiful shot Steve, lots of detail. The E3 is a fine camera for sure.

Great shot Steven, Sharp as a tack, like your composition and framing.

Thank you very much for all the nice comments everyone. Glad you like the shot.

This bird was one of a pair spotted in the trees at a local park. I have found that parks often provide great shooting opportunities for wildlife photos.

I think one of the things that makes that shot so unusual is that we don't see a heron curled up in a tree very often. Maybe they do it all the time and we just don't notice it, but when I see one it's wading in the water fishing.

Yes, they are usually seen at the water edge. The times I have spoted them in trees were always in woods that were right beside the water. They were always within sight of the water when resting in a tree.
