  1. This is one is for Helmet (Brett) I know how he like the Black Crowned Night Herons. This is a portrait of one extremely close-up... :eek: :eek:

    Shot with a D2X Full Frame no converters, no-cropping and very little post processing... :Shocked:

    Wow, great shot. How close were you?
  5. Love the eye! I like these close up birdie portraits! Nice job!!
  6. Awesome view of a BCNH, Ron Reznick posted one recently at DPR and the quality of this image is right on par!

    Congrats Eric...about your wild animal park suggestion, I will ask work for the day off and let you know later today...

  7. What a sweet portrait you will learn to love the 200-400 I have never regretted purchasing it is is a stellar piece of glass
  8. Excellent Pete and the detail is great. The red in the eye really makes the photo.
  9. Humm Gordo, Who is pete?


  10. Gale: Thanks
    He was in the shade so I hit him with some fill flash...

    Frank: Thanks

    Jeff: I was within 10 feet of this guy.. At the Wild Animal Park they are very used to people and just sit there on the trees, posts anything...

    Brett: THis guy was shot at the Wild Animal park.. Along with the other shots I posted Sunday morning.. Not sure you found that post yet?

    Mike: THanks.. I already have not regretted this lens buy... Only used it three times and it has opened up a different world to my photography...

    Louis: Thanks
  11. Just excellent, Eric! :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: That bright red eye sure is prominent here! Well captured and presented bird.

  12. THanks Philippe....
