it's nice when you can get really close, isn't it? green herons are one of my favorite birds to photograph... love the first shot, the second two are good but a bit overexposed.

Will, that first one is simply stunning!Such detail would not be possible without such a close view. I've seen them from a distance but could not appreciate their colouring until now. Thanks for this. Dan
Thanks Dan, but some thanks has to go to Hung for suggesting that lens. I never would have gotten the shot with my old one.

Yup, the sun was in and out from the clouds due to a good breeze that day. Working in manual mode, and trying to check shots in between was crazy. That little guy didn't stay long either.

Beautiful shots Will. I know your excitement seeing one of these. I've only ever encountered one once now (2 years ago), and it was a treat to see. Nice that you could get right up close...cheers..Don
