    Little Blue Heron... C&C welcomed and appreciated.

    I found these hiding amongst images in a folder I had shot about three weeks ago. I like them a lot. Thank you for viewing.

    Joe, these are both great but I think the second one is fantastic. The pose, the composition... I love it! I'd love to say something more constructive, but I really can't come up with anything.

    Unless there is a specific reason for having a square image I may consider cropping to 4 x 5 ratio particularly with the first one which I would crop slightly on the right side.

    The bird is looking to the left but that side is the narrowest margin.

    Focus and exposure are perfect.

    Thanks Geoff, I appreciate another set of eyes looking at the image and suggesting positive edits. I tried the 4x5 ratio you suggested and also 4x3. I thought both of those left too much negative space beyond the direction the bird was looking. So I settled on 1x1 crop but off centered the bird more or less along the 1/3 division line. Thanks for taking the time to look and comment. Below are the most recent edits.
