Grey Heron (Aredea cinerea)

I have captured this Grey Heron at Marieval Bird Sanctuary, early in the morning, just after Sunrise. This bird was sitting among the Reed beds and I had to chose a perfect point of view from where I could get at least a decent clear picture. Before click I often change exposure + to - to get proper exposure and hope here I managed to get proper depth.

Grey Heron is a wading bird and native throughout temperate Asia, Europe and part of Africa.

Hi Srikumar,another great capture in the morning light,but i prefere to do the same in a sunrise light,because i like to sleep a lot :-) . A perfect shot as usual, a common species in my country too, i have some pics of the grey heron but butterlies are my first choice for this website. Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Ciao Srikumar, great capture of lovely Heron in nice pose, wonderful natural colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Srikumar,

Rgerees are framing well the bird. The point of view is showing the details of the Grey Heron. The sharpness is very good. The light is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

Pierre
