That’s brilliant, @guido2004. We have herons round here, and they stand stock-still, until you’re just within camera range and then they take off before you can click. I’m really impressed you could get a picture at all, never mind such a good one.
Indeed, that’s why I used the max zoom on my camera (which lowered the quality quite a bit, but it was the only way to get a shot) and I only got 1 shot before it took off
One strange thing I noticed is that they don’t care for the cars that pass at high speed, but when you go by bicycle they escape when you get nearer.
Two awesome photos!
The one with the train seems like a commercial: those colors, those clouds, they almost seem painted.
And the Egret (I learned a new word today ) is absolutely beautiful, the water fading immediately after the bird, and the bird itself so crystal clear (and so perfectly white). Just amazing.
That certainly is an excellent reflection, but please remember this is a photo challenge and this forum is reserved for photography only. However, there is a graphic forum here at SitePoint and you may wish to start or enter a graphic war or graphic challenge.
