    Bill that's an absolute cracker you really nailed it! Great exposure colours and detail, I am being really picky now but would suggest lowering the saturation and possibly the luminosity of the yellows - just a bit.

    Great timing and that light looks sublime. I really like the mid-step action and the low shooting angle, and the little catchlight finishes things off nicely.

    I absolutely love everything about this picture except the head angle. Wish it was angled towards us a little. Everything else is just perfect. Man you cleaned up on the heron images down there. Have the feeling that more are to come...

    As Jonathan wrote, a cracking image. Love everything about it. Thank you for sharing, Bill.
