  1. That is a moment and a half to catch…so to speak 🙂 With all the…graceful splashing around!

    • Thanks, it was amazing to see the late day sun backlighting the water splashes and droplets in the air and I was pleased that the camera was quick enough for the capture. This heron is one of my long-time favorites, I am smitten.

  2. Gorgeous shot! I love the the way you caught the water splashing up!

  3. HI Babsje This is a great shot and as you say it blends in so well you could nearly miss the Heron.

  4. Gorgeous shot, Babsje. Thanks for sharing and for taking part 🙂

  5. I love the splashes of light!

  6. These (the fabulous image with fish in bill) are great images, love the lighting. Thanks for sharing

  7. WOW…very beautiful shot. I had to look twice before I saw what’s happened. Pawkiss 🙂
