I really like these, Steven.

I've never seen a baby heron. They're not born with long necks - they get them as they grow up?

When shooting birds, I try to use single point autofocus, aimed at the eye. I have found that to be a pretty effective technique.
Good tip Steve, thanks.

Thats the first time I saw a baby heron. I never knew they born with short necks. Interesting.

Thanks for the comments guys.

This was a gown Little Blue Heron. The Little Blue Heron is a different species from the Great Blue Heron and is much, much smaller. While they are common down here, they are nowhere near as plentiful as the Great Blue Herons that I so often photograph. You can read about Little Blue Heron here:
