Was this just natural light? What shutter speed and ISO did you use. It looks amazing.

Really beautiful shot. I particularly like the water flow background. It really shows off the bird.

Lovely capture with slow shutter speed. Herons and Egrets make great subjects for this type of image as they will stay still as statues! Congrats!

This shows how still the heron stands when the river blurs and he doesn’t.
