Steve I like this set of shots. I'm (impatiently) still awaiting delivery of my FZ18 so interested as a birder in the EOZ and this is excellent!

May I ask the approximate distance they were taken from. Also in another thread with your birding pictures there was another picture of said Heron. Was this from closer or a crop of one of these prints?

thanks



Steve



Edit: - Apologies I re-read the other thread and notice it was a crop. Excellent results. I wonder what the equivalent weight and glass might have been for a DSLR replication.

I have a hard time figuring the distance on this shot. It was on a highway bridge looking down at the river. Best I can say is 40 feet or more. But that is a guess and it could have been less. These are small herons. The Great Blue did not cooperate.

I belong to a bird forum and someone there kept asking me about the camera so I wrote a review and used a large gull as a zoom demonstration subject. You might enjoy it.
