Not a very artistic shot, but still Iím proud of this picture : I captured this grey heron in the wild around Haarlem, last summer and I needed a lot of patience to come close...
This upload is also to thank Klaus (kjpweb) !
Not only he is one of the most friendly member of the photo gallery, but he gladly shares his expertise and advices and always help me to make better pictures !
And I know Iím not the only one that Klaus is helping...
Thank you very much, my friend !
Klaus is also a fantastic photographer himself and I remember his recent fantastic egret series ! (see e.a. Light and shadow!)
Thank you very much for your comments on my previous upload :

A gorgeous photo. I always seem to scare these guys off long before I get within decent camera range. Great job here and I agree that Klaus is a special friend to many here on RR. Always upbeat, up-front and full of advise.

Well thanks! And delivering that with an Egret, that I can't get in the states! Bravo. He looks almost identical to the great Blue Heron. Only difference are additional reddish color streaks at the neck area and the onset of the wings. Love the thick green grass he's standing in. So thank's again - you're too kind!

Nice capture. I used to see one of these down in the river when I crossed the bridge going to work; but never got a picture - it was a bit dark at 6am!

:-} thought it was Florida (super green grass and looks a lot like our herons) but then I saw Haarlem ?? LOL I took a look at the link :-) Beautiful shot, if they are anything like the ones here they would be extremely shy.

He does resemble a great blue heron very much. Excellent job.
