    Default The Grenadier Heron

    Not sure if you got confused with the postings. FredS and I both posted heron pictures with the same title within hours of each other. I've reposted with a new title. Hope that is OK.

    Heron pictures from Grenadier Pond, High Park, Toronto.

    What a really nice set. I love the composition in the last one with the little spray of water drops off of his/her feet.

    Thanks Iggy. Just wish that last one was a little sharper. He/she took off so fast I didn't have time to refocus. Just snapped the picture.

    birding is so hard. I suck at it. I do think that these could use a bit of exposure and a warmer white balance to really do them justice.

    Not bad at all, considering where your light source was Asnow. Like the second one for sharpness and reflection.
    As for gender, both sexes are the same, just male is larger, so unless you see them together it's a tough call.
    Reality is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there!
