Nice silhouette of the Heron and its shadow. Nice golden colors in the water.

Good image.
I didn't know it was a heron--thought it was an egret. But I don't know birds by silhouette. (Well, I guess egrets are a variety of heron.)
Good that he got his special shot--he looks like he was waiting for you to take it.

Hello !

I saw White Egrets in Everglades National Park in Florida. Here, in our Northern clime, we have herons, the common Great Blue Heron and the scarcest Green Heron.
