Another wonderful picture of a mostly white bird. Well done, but then I'm getting used to you always posting these excellent pictures now.

Really nice composition, color and exposure. Also sharp as a tack. The blurred background is perfect.

Very well done 2many. Assuming that is your Tamron 70-300mm, I really think you got a premium example of that lens.

Yes it was the Tamron 70-300mm, and I do believe I got the best one.

Couldn't be better!

How come he let you in so close? I saw a pair of cranes yesterday, at 200 metres. If I try to come much closer, they peep off. Extremely shy and cautious.

I guess he was more interested in eating, than worrying about me, I got almost within 10 yards of him.
