Just a bird I came across today.
Normally they're a bit shy, but this one didn't really mind me being there.
( all shot with a k10d and Tamron 70-300 ld DI,
larger versions are available on the linked flickr pages)

Enjoy - Ronny







but enough is enough so after some time he did leave.


oh yes these 3 were in the neighorhood working on their wet look.

Wow! Very nice with that lens. Great to know that it does so well with the K10D.

ronny,
looks like i'm probably wrong as you are in belgium and i'm in texas. they are quite similar tho. a number of herons around here change drastically depending on the season.

Love your pictures, Ronny. What type of heron is it (or is itsomething else - looks like it's related to the herons around here)? It's pretty and you've done such a good job of catching all the feather texture.

Roy,
these ones don't change depending the season.
They almost always look this way.
5 years ago they were rare, but the last 2 years they are really making a comeback. Even so hard that they have to go into parks to get there food, and it's making them a lot less shy.
Ronny
