I prefer this one to your 2nd place finish in the July Free Study. The Zoo and Bird Park in Singapore are hands down the best I have ever been to. I hope I get to re-visit them someday.

Congrats on the Top 10, Andrew! Knew this was yours immediately, as I remembered the last one you did like this (you may have even located the same wild bird!). Striking colors, clarity, and reflection! Well done :O)

He chatted with her for what seemed like an hour. She said all the right things. She moved like him. She smiled when he did. She flapped her wings daintily at him when he flapped at her. He was in love, and when he bent down shyly for a kiss, she bent towards him too.

When it was over, and he was flying home, one thought was on his mind. He hadn't expected it to be so...

Ps. I have an entry in this challenge myself as well but it's not really going anywhere.

Gorgeous shot of the heron and his reflection. Perfect pose. He looks a bit bluer than the ones I've seen. I rather dislike the color of the water, though I don't doubt it looked that way. I'd probably mess with nature and shift it greener and desaturate it.
