One of the all time great Green Heron images. The beautiful light, the balance it shows as it stretches while anticipating the splash, are all top notch. Wonderful image.

You have really frozen the moment of full stretch before the leap perfectly, Karl! Wonderful image with excellent detail. Amazing capture!

Karl, Well Done! It's impressive to see just how long their necks are right before they enter the water.
