morning visitor – white-faced heron

It’s a warm and sticky Saturday morning. Around 7 o’clock, I looked up from my desk to see this heron making his/her way across the back yard.

Thus began a dash for the camera followed by a slow and quiet positioning at a distance with the lens at 210mm. Had the shutter speed up high to be ready for the inevitable departure. Here’s the shot at ISO 1600, f6.3, 1/1250.

And another, in the shadows and not so sharp at ISO 3200, f6.3, 1/1250.

    🙂 Thanks Joanna. Might get back into some new cards once the new year gets going. I had to search for some images of a sandhill crane. They look amazing.
