Every time I focus a night heron, no exception for other birds as well, I focus on their eyes. In fact, the shining bright red eyes of this creature are attractive as well as dangerous. The gaze it has on the water isa sign of sure killing as it eventually will result in preys being caught and swallowed. Here are a few shots I took of this creature. In all the situations, the heron was in a low-light environment, so bear with the noise.

You have a lot of shore bird photos here. I am also a Hong Konger. Where did you go to shoot them? Would like to know.

Well 200 isnĀ“t that much. How is your over all experience with the vr 18-200?
