    Heron close up

    I was stalking this heron and getting pretty close waiting for the flyaway shot but he wouldn't fly, I ended up about 6 feet from him and decided to get a close up shot.

    Really nice. Focus spot on. Background blur is great. I really like the lighting, gives a beautiful contrasty shot. Bet you were pleased with this.

    Roger this is gorgeous.

    I love the lighting.

    I can barely get within 60 feet of one of these much less 6! Must be something about me!

    It was at a man made lake with lots of foot traffic but that said I've only been able to get that close one other time with a Egret.

    Great shot Roger. I love the detail, the shallow DoF, and the colors. Very nice.

    That's amazing and you certainly made the most of the opportunity. You've done a superb job on getting the details.

    Nice close up Roger. They can be stubborn at times. Once you have gained their confidence and get close it can be difficult to get that fly away shot at all.
