Excellent series Ben. I have had difficulty getting flight shots of these guys. They are just too quick.

Good job. :wink:

Nice shots

A nice sequence of shots, I like seeing flight sequences in a row, nicely done.

this was the 1st time I took the Hs out for a real shoot and boy can she fire off some shots. Never been able to do that, and must admit at 1st it was even a bit intimidating :), but I'll get used to it.

Thanks for looking and commenting

Nice sequence, how much reach did you have?

I'm curious, what lens did you use for this, and about how far away was it?

Great captures, juvenile night herons can be quite comical as they soon discover where and where NOT to land! Great series with a great new camera, thanks for sharing.

Great shots Ben. It looks like you really like that new camera. I hope to upgrade my D100 real soon and have a chance to get shots like this some day. Keep them coming.

I was using the consumer grade 70-300 at 300. My guess would be about 60 yards. In post I did some cropping as well.

Thank you very much
I really feel very lucky to own a camera capable as it is and be living in a place where I can put the camera to good use :)

I can definitely recommend an upgrade as soon as you can. My friend who shoots a D70, calls me Machine gun ben now :)
