These images are just stunning. This is just gorgeous. The movement of the water, the light over the heron and all the fine details in the feathers. They must stand really still for a long time.

strong details! Looks like this Heron wasn't too quickly if you managed to shot him with 1/2 second exposure.

Great shot, I sure am glad you showed us the bloopers, I was beginning to suspect you were hypnotizing the birds.
