Went to the conservation area nearby this morning. It was beautiful with just the right sunlight .







This one is heavily cropped. If it was a K10D likely I have a better image. I have no clue if a 400 or 500mm is better for my BIF approach for manual lens.














No way that a human being can beat a heron when it comes to fishing

Your bird pictures are as wonderful as your wide-angle pictures - your second one is incredible.

You're really getting the grip on this birding thing, Daniel. #2 is amazing!

Last shot is a bit strange to me, though. Where I live a heron would never stay fishing as close to a human competitor as in your photo. They are very shy here.

Just talking to Hung or Royce in the wildlife forum and he had a closer encounter with a heron. It probably depends on how playful or how hungry they were

Here is a shot that is similar. I was out with my daughter at the local pond. We were feeding ducks when in flies this black crowned night heron. It walked right up to about 1 foot from me expecting a piece of bread! I was so shocked. Who knew a heron would take bread like a duck! Lol! I took this shot with my 50mm f1.8 lens. Not exactly a "standard" lens in the world of birding photography!
