blue herons are so pretty and so difficult to get close to.

Nice colours and composition. Maybe a shollower depth of field would have isolated the angler more, giving the pic more impact.

The image appears a bit dull, perhaps a bit more contrast & saturation would help.

Colors seem muted for some reason. The greens just don't seem as saturated as I'd like.

you framed the picture very well. Nice shot. I always envy people who can take wildlife pictures the animals always move away before I can get the camera out!
