Blue and Gold
« on: September 30, 2022, 05:31:25 pm »

The ubiquitous Great Blue Heron from this morning's walk in Oklahoma City's Martin Nature Park. I don't always photograph these very common birds, but this one managed to put itself in a very nice location on the creek and the mixture of some early fall color and the early morning sunlight produced an unexpected golden color. Hope you all enjoy these.

Good catch. The heron has the good idea to choose a very nice and pleasing backdrop. The golden colors are perfect and give a warm and spectacular look.

I agree and think this is the best of the bunch, even though they are all good, number 2 is my pick.

Really like these images with great colours and composition.  The second one is the best.
