Have not imaged birds in almost 4 months, but I am please with this image.
Very nice capture Jeff. I love shots of these guys with the crest up. :smile:
Very nice Jeff. I've never seen one do that, but then I am not a regular bird photog. Cool look.
Nice one Jeff. I have not seen a herons crest up like that before, either. That lens/tc does a great job - very sharp.
Love it! Nice capture of my favorite water birdie! LOL, I've only seen 1 with his crest up like that but was too far away for me to get a good shot at it! Perhaps he's looking for a girlfriend? :wink:
Thanks. I was using binoculars when I first saw him....had seen one at the other end of this small pond surrounded by light industrial stuff. But the earlier bird (no pun intended) was just a spec in my 300/1.7 combo (which really is a true bargin price/performance wise).
I was just leaving when I spotted him....he flashed his crest just for a second as I watched. Then I got the camera out and just waited....he ate a fish and then displayed...I visit this pond about 20 times a year and each year always see something unusal. First time for the GH, they apparently only visit this location to breed. I will be watching for young as the other GH I'm sure was a female.
Again thanks for the comments.
what a beautiful bird and well captured too!
thanks for sharing jeff.
Love the color
That is one cool-looking bird, I've never seen anything like that before. I'm still enjoying the new wild-life here, it is so different than in the Netherlands.
Nice one Jeff. I have one that is perching in a tree (yes, perching) in the ravine behind that I'm trying to capture. Today's efforts were not so good, need more reach.....
nice shot, and what a way to get back into the birds!
