Got these today. Couldn't believe it when he landed at the pond.

Congrats bmullen, nice coloration, contrast, and I particularly like the forward motion implied in the second work.

Thanks Norm,

My wife and I were so thrilled to be able to get some decent shots of this magnificent bird.

What great luck to be there when he landed! I know how skittish these guys can be (unless they're golf course herons). You made the most of your opportunity. Very nice.

These GBH's can strike the wierdest poses, as for example in your second picture. Neat.

What kind of camera are you using? I ask because I can see a slight amount of PF (purple fringing) at the border between the grey-blue and white plumage on the GBH's head.

It's a Panasonic FZ 20 with a Raynox 2020Pro add on. I think maybe the add on is mostly responsible for the purple fringing.

I think you're probably right about the 2020 telextender causing that amount of PF. I know, from seeing many other FZ10/FZ20 shots up here that the usual amount of PF from the camera and builtin lens alone is never that much.

Good job, regardless!

Yeah, me too. I definitely can't complain, though. I've been wanting a picture of one of these for a long time.

Geoffs, I think my Raynox 2020 pro works best on sunnier days. It was pretty cloudy here yesterday.
