:lol:

This is actually a funny picture for those who know this bird. They have long legs like any Heron, and this picture makes him look like a cross between a Penguin and a Heron.

Really cute!

First time seeing a heron in this position. Wish light was little less harsh.

Very unique capture, I love it. I put it through a quick pass in Paint Shop Pro9'snew curves feature to get rid of a bit of that harsh light. Hope you don't mind. If you do, just say so and I'll remove the picture.

Not at all - I appreciate all the feedback! The funniest thing about this was that there were literally about 7-8 people about 4 feet away from this bird. It looked like the bird was doing a standup routine!

Normcar, the only problem is that I don't believe they are that dark in the wild. The original is much closer to their natural color. You did bring out the forhead detail well, though.

That is a great shot. A really weird (for me) position for one to be standing. The underwings are facing up! Really odd.

Nicely done!

an odd pose and a great capture. 4 feet fromthe bird???? where do you folks find birds that tame???? 40 yards is about my close approach!!!
