Another quality wildlife shot from you, good choice of high ISO when the light is like that, it can so easily sap the colour from an image in an instant! You have caught this one beautifully on take off, the smaller details are superbly caught and pin sharp too, like the muddy water off it's feet - frozen in mid air, brilliant. The composition of the photograph is great too giving the bird space to fly into and great DoF to bring the main focus to the Heron. Great work. Best wishes

This looks just great to me .. composition, sharpness, color, action .. you've got it all here. What a graceful looking bird with its curved neck.
Very well done my friend.

Bellissime ce héron, même avec les pattes encore maquillées de boue, l'envol est assurément léger et majestique.
Malgré le ciel capricieux, vous avez réussi une luminosité convenable pour cette composition fort agréable.
Cette image est estimable, merci pour le partage de votre passion. Belle semaine à vous.
Amitiés sincères. Yolande

What a delightful shot from Heron with such marvelous details!
I like the eye of the bird, you captured with razor-sharp focus and the perfect contrast to the surroudings. The colors are natural and the timing was just perfect!

You have certainly caught the details with this Heron capture.
Good clarity, just look at that wet mud falling off its feet
& sharp details of its feathers.Well taken IMHO.

Great timing, the pose is beautiful.
What you say about adjusting ISO continually is something that also happens to me in cloudy days or evenings, hahaha.
I guess f/5.6 is the widest aperture for 300mm and it is enough to accomplish a great DOF effect, like you did here.
Good shot Werner, one to be proud of.

I know it seems like it should be an easy thing to do to capture a good quality heron in flight shot, but I know that it's not. You have really good details in your photo. I always look for the little wisp of feathers at the back of their heads -- as you have presented. The colours of the huge bird's wings and body are excellent. Well done! TFS.

Hello Werner,an excellent composition, and excellent timing to capture the heron in flight.The shot is so sharp that we can see the droplets of mud falling from its feet as it takes off.The blurred bg accentuates the sharpness of the details of the heron, well done.

Awesome in-flight capture of a pretty heron.
The details and colour looks very precise and accurate.
TFS and have a nice day MF!
Am fascinated by herons and have been looking to take a shot like this. Excellent! I'll keep on trying, remembering yours, down to the curved drops of water off the foot.
