Scene from a local lake

Recently visited a NWR near Memphis that has a shallow, swampy lake. I came across this scene with a green heron, kingfisher, and turtles fairly close together. I took this image to show the habitat and also some of the local inhabitants.

I think you captured an environmental scene well. I like the color palette. They seem to be looking off to the left-makes you wonder what’s there.

Nice environment here. Well displayed behaviors. Looks like a great place to get avian images.

A very nice scene, Allen. I like the positions of the three main elements-they make a nice triangle. The reflection of the heron and its perch works nicely as well.

Hi Allen
I agree with all the above comments. Nice work.
