Heron - Posing! by megpicatilly

Heron - Posing!

Don't think I have ever been so close to a heron. We have one locally but he is so shy and flies off the moment he sees someone (or perhaps just me?!). This one in Kensington Gardens sat there for us to photograph, looking very stately!
He really was gorgeous wasn't he! Your processing is amazing and you've managed to get rid of that post/chain that you were bothered about.

I was having a little chuckle about your 'reverse genie' skills a little earlier! :-)

@cottiac This was taken when he 'agreed' to move very slightly to the right which meant I didn't have to spend hours in Photoshop cloning out the post and chain!!!

@365anne Thank you. It was great to get so close to one. They are beautiful birds.

Brilliant! Herons are so hard to get a good photo of. Like the ripples in the water and his (or her!) reflection

@photobird Thank you! This one was clearly used to having his/her photo taken!!!

@30pics4jackiesdiamond Thank you Jackie! He flew off very soon after this was taken.

@redandwhite Thank you. I was very lucky to see him and amazed he stayed still for so long

@milaniet Thank you. The difference a warm, sunny spring day makes to the lighting!

Very imposing stance. Love the oily effect of the water.

@365projectorgjenfurj They are really quite regal birds aren't they?

@onewing Thank you Babs. Please don't apologise, it is sometimes so difficult to find the time, but I hope things are improving for you.
