Weekend Reflections

Today I am participating in Weekend Reflections hosted by James
from Newtown Area photo
My reflection picture for today is of a heron in a little stream surrounded by willow trees. I made this picture last week on a beautiful sunny day.

Hoi Riet,

Prachtige foto van de reiger. Ook de ondergaande zon vond ik erg mooi. Is altijd moeilijk om met de camera vast te leggen. Dat heb je knap gedaan!

groeten, Madelief

awarewriter said...

Nice...and very subtle. Subdued colors can work well as you have shown here.

Carolyn Ford said...

I also love the subdued colors here. Such a natural and beautiful image. Beautiful reflection of that magnificent water bird!

He's not alone, he's got his reflection on the water...great shot.

Riet, I read your "About me" and I have recently taken up both photography and blogging as I prepare myself for retirement.

I so like the delicate double image of the heron. So elegant and so fragile. I have an attraction to muddy streams like this that are overhung with willows and mangroves. They are often ao full of unusual animal life.

Im just getting a really funny image of you creeping up on this little guy, hardly able to breathe in case you set him to flight. Congratulations on a great snap

Hi Riet,

SUPER, geweldig mooie reflection foto heb je gemaakt op een prachtig zonnige dag. Dat maakt deze foto helemaal compleet. Heb net ook even bij James gekeken en zijn foto's liegen er ook niet om zeg, werkelijk fantastisch.

Heerlijk weekend,

Mr Heron's colors blend beautifully in the landscape!

Herons are difficult to capture with a camera. You did well! I think all the herons that were here in Canada for the nice weather have now flown south.

Pam said...

The heron makes a wonderful reflection in the water as he searches for something to eat.
Nice shot, Riet

sunnymama said...

Lovely! Fantastic shot of the heron and his reflection with the pretty colours of the leaves reflected in the water too. Hope you are having a great weekend. :)

This is such a wonderful reflection capture. It's difficult to see where the heron ends and the reflection begins. Beautifully done. Kathy
