    This Heron appeared unexpectedly, first millisecond I thought it's another gull, but then raised my 300/4 and fired a 7 shot burst.
    To my amasement it was a very rare (here) Night Heron, whom I never saw before...
    This is my 90th wild bird specie photographed! :smile: :biggrin: :cool:

    Hi Phillip,
    thanks for the comment.
    Shot with 30D + 300/4L IS + TC14, processed (minimal) in RawShooter.
     
  7. Great capture! The images look a little noisy - easily fixed with Neat Image. Congratulations!!

    Best,

    Jose

    Thanks Jose, noise comes from sharpening and ISO400, when I print them, I'll reduce the noise for sure.
     
  9. WOW, Igor these are all beautiful! Congrats on your mile stone of 90 species! That's awsome!

    Nice shot of an interesting bird ! BCNHs are relatively common over in the US, but they're fascinating birds to shoot.

    Thanks John, our NH's are also considered to be common, but it's the first time I saw one!
