Wonderful shots NHL. What were your camera/lens settings, if I might ask? I'm ready for spring. Woody

Yeah, I'm ready for Spring as well. Just dug my car out today and went to the beach.

Wonderful shots indeed!!!! Where are you located?

There's a Blue Heron who spends the Winter in Brooklyn, but he hangs out in another location.

Maryland - lots of lakes here, and of course the Potomac where there's several colonies along its banks! :lol: :-) :G

Great shots!

Assuming there is actually SOME sunlight this weekend I plan on going back to check on the new Eagle's nest amid the colony of Heron nests nearbye. When I was there a week ago, the Heron's still hadn't returned. So, it will be interesting to see how 'everyone' gets along.

By the way - what is your decision criteria for when to use the Sigma with TC vs the 100-400? How does the Sigma with TC compare to the Canon without TC? I would guess having auto focus on the Sigma is a definite bonus, but since you still use both - what makes you decide to use one over the other?

Black vs White ??? :lol: :-) :G

Seriously I had the 100-400L the day before because the lens was light and I was just taking a stroll in the park... When I found out the herons were already nesting, I came back the next day with the Sigma since I need more reach - A 600mm prime will be nice (but then I can't handhold anymore) :sad:

I'll need to bring a tripod with a bigger lens and you probably know how small my convertible is already! :roll:


Thank
