For weeks I have been watching a great blue heron fly over my yard twice a day, going out in the morning about 7:00am and coming back about 6:00pm, regular as the most routine bound commuter. I suspected I might know where he was going to fish, but this morning was the first time I had the time to check it out. Sure enough, I found him, along with friends, in the tailwaters of a dam.

Both shots taken with Pentax K10D with Tamron 70-300 at 220mm. ISO 800, f 5.6, 1/350th sec, EV +0.5

Sorry about the confusing posting with the duplicate name. My upload crashed and I didn't think anything went through. This pic was supposed to be pic #2 after the heron BIF in the other thread with the same title.

The forum has been challenging to say the least as far as posting goes. Good capture.

Beautiful great blue heron! One thing that distracts my eye from this nice heron shot is that rock on the upper left. It's a minor thing but can be easily cloned out in photoshop. When putting together an image one trick to focus the viewers eye even more on the subject is to eliminate or reduce distracting elements in the background. Give it a try and you will notice that the overall composition will look even better.
