Default Feeding time for Heron

Earlier I was in an urban area just north of Toronto (Markham) and I did not bring my long lens. And the longest one was just a FA135mm. And I got real close. And I mean it.


























The GBH just did not care as it was trying to feed itself before its long migration to the south. As far as I can see, ASA 1000 is entirely ok with my vintage K20D

I agree with MacBook great captures for both of you. It's not easy to get that close to a GBH

Great shots, I still use a K20D and will for some time yet. The results are still good. This is certainly a great capture.

They look like so. But they are small this time of the year

Its ASA 1000 is entirely workable as shown

It is easy to get close if they are desperate to hunt. But if they are in their rookery (around March every year in T O) that would have been very difficult to approach
