heron letting us know he resented us disturbing him. Captured from vehicle open window. This heron was near the side of the highway at the entrance to our small town.

thanks Don, glad you like it. Am also fascinated by the wings of these great birds. We were "chasing" some down again today. Not sure yet what luck I had :)

Another sweet Heron capture Alandra. I like the wings spread wide open like that, looks great. Don

thanks Alan. They make an awful loud noise when disturbed, lol. I always used to leave a fair bit of space around the bird photos, but then noticed most had cropping much closer, so I started cropping closer also, but with the flight captures, it's best to leave some space, at least in the direction the birds are moving.

Fantastic photo Alandra!! Great focusing on that moving Heron. I like your composition on this one with you leaving some room for him to fly into.

I agree, Doug, a sunset there would be so cool. That's the next thing I must learn to do :)

Great catch, you need to put a sunset in the background. Doug :)
