Just a few shots of a heron and goose from the other day. 20D 500mm& tripod.


1. It's amazing how herons can twist their necks. unfortunately the depth of field is a bit too shallow.

2. Geese can twist their necks pretty well too.

3. Just a full mouth. this heron really liked a certain fishing spot. He flew away and returned later to the same spot.

Outstanding shots, all. How the heck do you get so close to the GBH? I can't get withing 100 yards without them squaking and flying off. Wonderful captures. Woody

Thanx Woody!!! Most of the time I'm like you, can't get close enough for anything nice. that happened to me a few days back with a black crowned night heron. At 100+ yds they aren't very big in the viewfinder. Also, had some ospreyand cormorant shots at 100 to 200 yds. Just not worth printing or viewing.This particular heron was either very acclimated to people or was so intent on fishing that he didn't care. A young couple walked within 10 feet of him and he just made a quick look and went back to fishing. For most of the shots I took I had to move way back because I was using the 500mm and a 1.4TC. I took the TC off so I could get more of the heron in the frame. Someone else, saw the same heron (I would assume) at the same spot and still cooperative to people. I get lucky sometimes. gotta get back there to try for more wren shots and find an unknown mtsterious bird.
