    I saw this Heron standing along a pond. I walked up, ever so gingerly, then "poof"...he was gone like a cool breeze on a summer's day. Better luck next time I guess. Here's my feeble attempt at my first Heron...

    I find about 300ft is about the minimum,

    unless they 're very accustomed to ppl. The one on my pond will almost always flee if he sees me moving. Good shot, did you get it with your 300?

    Yeah Steve...I am surprised that any of the images were in focus. I spun around and shot between some trees as though I was shooting with a machine gun. I figured that the lens choice was to use the 300mm. I guess next time I'll need to crawl in on my belly like G.I. Joe.
  4. LOL............based on all those birdies in Florida I thought they were all tame and pets in peoples yards. Would luv one day to get the opportunity to get a shot at one of these guys. Well done!!

  5. WHOA!!! That heron just pops out of that shot!! Well done!! :D  :D  :D  :D
