    Weent back to the same spot I was at the other day, but remembered to bring my tripod this time. Big diference! Have several other good shots I'll process a bit later. Loving this 500 f4! (+TC 1.4)
    Had to compress this shot quite a bit in order to get it down to "only" 200k.

    Nice shot Steve. I don't see how you could possibly try that shot without the tripod. I know that I certainly couldn't. I'd get nothing but a blur. :?

    much better.
  5. Steve,

    Sharp as a tack here. So the question is, with all that algae on the surface how can the heron actually see any fish? :) :)
  6. Thanks a long way from kansas and you pulled it off Steve, great going!! What is with all that green stuff. LOL!!!

    We call this pond the "scum pond"

    It's actually a farmer's runoff pond, and is no doubt filled with nitrates. Just how that Heron gets through that crap is beyond me. Thanks for lookin folks!
