Enjoyed both of these. Quick question re Exif data if you don't mind. It shows you shot at f/8, 1/180", 300mm, ISO 2000 and flash fired. Did you use flash simply as fill in light? Reason for asking is that to my newbie reasoning, the other settings would be sufficient. Obviously they weren't, (and cetainly not a criticism), but I'm just trying to understand why you chose what you did. Always trying to learn.

Yes, I had flash set to high speed fill since the light that was available was coming from behind the Heron.
