Was able to get within 30 feet of this guy... Check out his eyes in frame #2.

Great series Kent.* *I especially like #3.* The flow of the neckline and the counter balance shift of weight just before the strike.* It is a really interesting capture that I find very appealing.* I never realized that they were so walleyed.* From the angle of the second shot it almost looks like the head is over inflated.* *Again, a really nice series of shots.* Steve

Outstanding series. The eyes in frame #2 are unique, and the strike...perfect timing. Wonderful job. Look forward to more. Woody

I also like the 3rd shot. Wish there was a shot after the 4th one where the heron catched its meal.

I also like #3... How do you get so close to be able to use a wide angle?
