    Blue Heron with horns

    Here's a shot taken in December with Olympus E-3 and the 50-200mm SWD lens at 200mm 1/800 5.6 ISO 800. C&C welcome.

    Nice captures Roger. Is that caused by the wind or is it just a bad hair day?

    Wow, I love it. That Great Blue must have had breeding plumage and the wind blew the crest forward. Very unique, well done Roger.

    Great catch. Wind must have been swirling. Everytime I catch one in the wind the are facing it. Nice work.
