Well thank you Maleea I’m really glad you like the photos!
Che foto affascinante, è una vera meraviglia. Complimenti Phil 🙂
Sono molto felice ti è piaciuto questa foto
Grazie Pat 🙂
Kind of nice ‘day is done, gone the sun’ feel to this…makes you wonder what all is happening at the marsh after night fall!! Bird looks very stately in that late day capture.
He sure looked relaxed and also was standing on one leg just enjoying the end of the day.
A man of mystery….
He is a cool dude!
He looks like someone from an Agatha Christie mystery! How I love the GBH!
The GBHs never fail to be interesting birds and lots of fun to photograph.
Wow fantastic image. The lighting is beautiful.
Thank you very much Edith!
This is a fantastic photograph!
I’m very happy you like it thanks!
Und so schööön!!!
Er ist eine gut aussehende Vogel 🙂
Beautiful! Looks like an Audubon painting.
Thank you Deb, I’m happy you enjoyed this GBH shot.
Wow, Phil! You’ve done it again! Simply breathtaking!
Thanks a million for the very kind comment!
Fantastic! Beautiful golden light:)
The light was fading rapidly but there was just enough to get this shot. 🙂
Yes that can be a problem to catch the “right” light… The sun disapers fast. Worked just fine for you:)
Right after I took this shot I saw a night heron at the edge of the marsh pond back lit nicely by the warm setting sunlight, but it lasted just seconds. So ya never know… 🙂
Glad you enjoyed it Paula!
That is a gorgeous photograph. The various tones are picked up in numerous ways. He is quite beautiful in this setting!
He is quite the handsome fellow isn’t he?!
Beautiful! Love the mood and light.
Thanks very much for checking it out!
That’s a wonderful image, Phil.
I’m very happy you like it Mike.
Yes, he definitely looks very furtive in this capture, Phil. Great shot! 🙂
You might not be able to tell because it’s dark down there but he is standing on one leg. Very relaxed. 🙂
Very nice portrait of the heron!
Thank you Lee, I’m glad you like it.
What a spooky shot. Amazing, though.
I appreciate you looking and commenting, thanks.
Incredible shot…the last glow of sunshine captured perfectly.
Thanks very much and it really did only last a few seconds then it was gone.
That is what makes it so special. 🙂
Such a great photo – almost looks like a painting!
Thanks and yeah it kinda does. Good observation.
Because you are one of the blogs who inspired me with your work while I was feeling miserable, I wanted to give you the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Normally, I just don’t have the time to participate, but this year I felt I really wanted to thank some people for their friendship and being there!! You really do make me want to be a better photographer and I can’t help being inspired by your action captures!! So you transported me to that Carolina marsh and all of its doings when I need it most!!
Here’s the link to my post if you want to have this award: http://janthinaimages.wordpress.com/2013/12/19/a-personal-thank-you-to-the-very-inspiring-bloggers-in-my-life/
Well I truly appreciate that Judy thank you very much!
This super, Phil. Neat warm angular spotlight on a cool GBH.
He is Mr. Cool out there for sure Steve!
Kind of off-topic, but I’d like to nominate you for another award, in recognition of how much I enjoy your images. http://wp.me/pKuUa-1kJ
Fantastic use of light and shadow in this photo. Love it!
One of my favorite birds! Lovely portrait.
