  • Support as nominator either square or landscape version. --Pine 01:25, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Reluctant Neutral, nearing Support It's a beautiful capture of this beautiful bird, but I'm afraid I have to say that the background was sort of distracting me when I viewed the picture. Arctic Kangaroo 15:57, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Support I've found backgrounds distracting before, but certainly not here. This is gorgeous. To be slightly honest, I prefer the wider image, but I think this makes nice use of the square frame. I kind of wonder if the wider image shouldn't be used on the reservoir article and the square image remain as the lead for the heron article, but that's just a minor preference that doesn't affect my vote at all. Clear eyes, gorgeous color. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 17:59, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
