Header Competition # 46 - Animal Reflections

The header theme this week by me and is ""Animal Reflection".    MacGail's Man,  LannyDave and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. 

Darla, Martha and Tom W are on a break. Come back as soon as you are able my friends.

I thought this might be of interest. Naturally Lake Hodgson supplied all the photos from fishing trips. The water ripples so sometimes the reflection isn't perfect. The Canada Goose family doesn't care.
An Osprey hits the water to capture a meal, not bad for the boat camera.
A Great Blue Heron wades the shore looking for a meal. I love the mist in the shot.
This on is clear but the reflection is no as good.
The one I chose is the Green Heron shown in Monday's post. It flew from the branch and landed on shore. What a treat it was to get this great reflection.

Go and see what the others came up with for their post. I wonder if there will be any mirrors?

Very nice shot of a beautiful bird and reflection, well done Tom.

I agree that the mist is a wonderful element in the picture of the Great Blue.

But there is something about the legs on that Green Heron (with a perfect reflection) in your header that makes me wish I could catch that bird and paint argyle socks on it. Yes, that's bad; I know.

Lake Hodgson has been good to you. You catch almost as many great pictures as you do fish.

Gaelyn said...

All great shots Tom, yet I think you chose the best for the header.

Gailsman said...

No reflections of fish then? I am surprised. But you got some good bird shots instead. Maybe they ate the fish!

Yes, all the photos are nice, but the header one is excellent when it comes to having a perfect reflection :)

I love the geese and goslings. And the Great Blue in the mist. Lovely.

Anna said...

Okay that is strange, lol, our local pond looks just like that, and there is Canada goose, osprey and great blue herons, lol. Kidding aside, nice collection. Anna :)

That is a very good reflection shot in the header.
I also like the heron shots. Like the action shot and the colors of the reflection on the water in the others.
Don't sell yourself short, they're all good!
