Default Intensity

This young heron was so intent on what might be in the water, that I could have approached even closer than what I thought was prudent. Taken with the 80-400 VR at 400mm, F5.6/125, 400 ISO.



Why won't this image show?

Marg, itís the space between jpg and [ but I canít seem to get rid of it. Try and use the link button on Fototime and select original, then copy the url and past here to see if that works.
Great shot by the way.

I have been trying to get a good close or semi-close shot of a heron for 2 yrs. They fly away as soon as we get anywhere near. This shot is amazing!

Thanks for the fix, Malcolm (and Brooks). I see you replaced the curly braces with an equivalent. I never had this problem with my regular method before, but next time I'll try Tom's suggestion.

Thanks also to JudyH and B.J. Hopefully, you'll have a chance to be near a young one, Judy. Since I took this one on Sunday, I've had to do a lot of back-pedalling to get the entire heron in the picture, they are so close. One yesterday landed on a nearby branch on a dead snag, which started creaking. Then later it snapped, causing the heron to get quite flustered. All this while I was changing the flash card, of course!

This one finally took a stab in the water, only to come up with just a stick. I hope the folks are still around to feed them!

Marg, awesome shot. Looks like his eye is going to shoot right out of his head into the water!
