Absolutely no mercy in this Great Blue Heron's eyes

Beautiful shot and only 220 mm of effective focal length, it is certainly a grey heron (Ardea cinerea), I happened many times to find myself face to face with it,
but unfortunately, either I didn't have the right lens or he escaped before I was able to change the lens. A lot of patience is needed with birds.

Good Luck for the next shots

Beautiful shot. Nice saturated colors. And really nice detail on the Heron.

Nice shot. The heron really stands out among the green vegetation.
