Conratulations on winning 1st place with this photo Sayer. I wondered why this one had moved up in the gallery. A well deserved first!!

He is doing something eating a bug so that is interesting, then the green folage keeps your eye moveing but then stops it and sends it back up to the bird then to the the eye just keeps moving around...that is very good, I also like how it's eye is lit up. It looks almost like there was water below that was reflecting the sun up into it's eye, because it looks like the eye should be in shadow...very nice capture

Even without the dragonfly this would have been an exceptional image - but with it, it is truly superb.
Joe Lasker19-Jun-2006 15:15
Wow, Sayer. Outstanding image!
Guest 19-Jun-2006 15:14
Oh no!!!!!!!!!!!! Its got a dragon :-( I hate herons now lol.
Joking aside, this is the most amazing shot, the feather detail on the heron is incredible, colours are fabulous and to top it all you have captured the heron with the dragonfly in its mouth. Truly wonderful, well done.
