Thank you everyon for commenting... Yes it's the same green heron as this one and I believe he was grooming his feather for the morning:

NHL, what lens are you using for these shots?



You are lucky, I've seen green heron maybe 4 or 5 times. But they never move!!! And I can't get nearly as close with my 300mm looking at them from the bird blind.

I use the Sigma 50-500
It's quite compact for a 500mm which is fine for my overseas travels...

IMO you need at least a 400mm for wildlife - One way to get close to them is to be on the water (on the other side of the bushes): http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...mp;forum_id=11
