This image is just pure awesome Zack and captured brilliantly guy!
 
Beautiful shot with the light hitting the heron and fish just perfectly. Partial reflection an added extra.
 
I don’t know how I missed this? what a top class image - drama, lighting, form and colour. Those reflections and the dplashes of green against the Heron‘s lilac plumage is sublime!
