Heron was in pretty deep shade and this is a huge crop. Please view high res.

Great Blue has returned to nearby icy pond. It was very intent on grabbing a crayfish, which it caught, and had a lot of trouble getting i tdown the gullet. Delighted to see it back here.

Excellent hunting pose, Cindy, in a nice natural setting with the ice and background habitat.

Nice pose and nice low angle... I think a bit more saturation would look good.

Classic stalking pose. Nice low angle shot Cindy! Looks good for heavy crop.

Excellent detail for a 'huge crop' as you say. Nice hunting pose in lovely natural habitat, giving so much to see and enjoy here, Cindy. Well done!
