Now, if we could just get the green heron, the black-capped, the great blue, and the bitterns together lined up in the reeds alphabetically, our goal would be complete. I love this shot especially with the feet going in opposite directions and the anticipation that he's about to push off and catch his meal somewhere just to the left. This is what I mean by "composition," and we control over so little composition even after studying the habits of these birds. Well done, Gilles.
thanks for your comment i have been told the bird i have photos of is "this kind" then I'm told its "that kind" I'm not 100% sure what it is but i liked the little guy "he" was hanging around all summer alone as far as i could tell actually flew within a foot of my hands once that was cool but you asked where and that would be in Westerly, Rhode Island U.S.A. i can tell you that the first person who saw the bird i have pictures of went home looked it up and told a friend that it was "rare" at least to the area i hope this helps and i hope i see him next season
