My preference is for the first version. The branches and leaves provide a context and show that the heron is trying to look like the vegetation, and they nicely frame the bird.

Gorgeous tones and detail.

Thank you Eric,
I like the first as well but thought people might like a "portrait" version as well.
Thanks for looking and taking time to comment.

Around here (Portland, Or.) those guys are very hard to get close to.  Nice job.

Thank you, this one was quite calm and allowed me to sit and watch him feed for almost an hour.
