p.1 #1 · Easy pickins for this GBH


I snuck up on this Great Blue Heron during its feeding time last week in the middle of the afternoon. I observed this heron down no less than 10 fish during the 25 minutes or so of this shoot. Many of the catches were small, but it did get a decent sized fish at the end of my shoot before I called it quits. It had to have been full after that! What a pig. -Mike

Hey Mike nice color on the set.
#1 is a great kerr-plunk with nice eye contact!
both #3 and #4 seem to need a little bit of rotation adjustment for horizon line?

I really like #3

Hey Karl, thanks man! Honestly, I struggled with the correct level on this one.. and I leveled the image according to the bird and the water right near the bird... which throws the distant horizon off just a bit. If I leveled to the distant shore line, then the bird and water would appear a little off-level... and I really didn't like that.

Very pleasing images, Mike. I like the lifelike colors and the fine detail in these.
The best way to level an image like yours, when there isn't a natural horizon or a vertical object, is to use the reflections being on the vertical line with the part reflected. I did check it and your images are leveled. Nothing significant. You did good

Good point of view to shoot from. Really satisfying set Mike (for me, and the GBH too I'm sure).

Nice set Mike,

It's amazing how much these and many other types of bird can eat in one sitting. I was saw three kingfishers take something like a hundred fish over the course of a day - and my wife things I eat too much!

Thank you Socrate, I use the same approach usually for leveling an image of a bird on water. I appreciate your kind words.. thanks!! -Mike
