I was taking pics of a bunch of Ibis when I noticed this Great Blue off in the distance.

Those are very nice! The reeds make a great addition to the shot.

Great color. With all those reeds around did you have to use manual focus?

Thank you guys, I appreciate your kind words!

Hey Glen,
yes, I was using an old Pentax manual 200 f:4. it's a fairly good lens stopped down a little and with good lighting. for birding it has a little too much fringing to suit me. first $7000 I can find laying around I'll get me one of those DA*400mm
GW
