Steve, this is a fact about heavy populated areas. When I working in the chemical industry, we could get closer to the egrets and other creatures, as they became more accustomed to us on a regular basis, however, we were not allowed to have photography equipment on site.

I posted a comment to this earlier and now it's gone, weird. Anyway, with your shutter speed of 1/80 and using a TCON-17 not many people could hold the camera steady. In cases like this where you can't use a tripod try using manual mode, opening the lens wide open, setting the shutter speed as high as you can even until the picture is a little dark, and shoot in burst mode. This might help some but then there are times one just has to accept the picture they are able to get be glad they were there to see it and shoot it.
Very pretty colors in this shot, I would like to have seen it if you had been able to use a tripod.

Amazingly vibrant. Can't add anything to Ted's suggestions, seems like good advice.

Ted, and Rafael, thanks very much for the comments. Ted I will have to try your suggestion and thanks for pointing that out. I wanted to get the shot and didn't think about the settings. I should have.
