The place where he was standing was pretty messy but as things got blurred as a result of the short depth of view of the 1000mm reflex mirror lens, the color so existed turned out to be pretty supportive of the presence of the grey heron in the scene. A lot of people don't like the donut effect of the mirror reflex lens, but I grew to have a preference for it after using the lens for some time.

Took this one at about the same distance away. The grey heron was standing on a marshland about 70m from the bank where I was standing.

Stunning creature, terrible bokeh. I think it would be worth the effort to apply some better blur digitally.

nice work wk7leung. i like that 2nd shot better. the lighting seems more even across the bird where as on the first shot the light just illuminates the front surface and the rest of the bird is in shadow. also the branches and green oof background make for a pleasant composition. nicely done.

Great shots, no doubt about it !! But the donut type bokeh, well I don't know, it kind of takes your attention away from the subject. Looks like it adds some artificial action to the background.

I have the impression that most people like the blurred effect than the donut one. A serene one does make the object being shot more prominent in the picture. No doubt about it. Thanks for viewing and giving comments.
