CommentI have entered this image because the heron is perched overhead in a eucalypt (E. goniocalyx) rather than the more usual waterside. The pose captures the characteristic elongated sharp bill, white face, and pale iris. The heron was well camouflaged in the overhanging foliage, except from this angle; the shadows at the lower neck and the backdrop of leaves tell of the location. It was a challenge to balance the blue of overhead sky and the white facial feathers.
EquipmentCanon 7D Mk II, Canon lens EF 100-400mm 1:4.5-5.6 L IS II USM; shutter speed 1/4000, ISO 1600, aperture 8.0, focal length 400mm
