    Out on a kingfisher recce and no sign of it but just as I was about to leave after a 2 hour wait, this came up the river straight at me. It had spotted me by the time I'd reacted, so I just went with the settings I had as it turned to my right. Not a spray and pray as the camera was set for single shot.

    One from a few seconds before the first, a bit further away and cropped as much as I dare.

    Fine capture. I like Herons, just not circling over my pond

    Cheers Leroy. I've been after a heron shot for a while, there are a few about here. I'd been sitting on the riverbank waiting on a kingfisher which is apparently in the area, no sign of it yesterday though after short wait of about 2 hours. I'd looked at my watch and thought to myself 'I'll give it until quarter past five'. Quarter past five came and I decided to give it another 15 minutes. I was taking the camera off the tripod to pack up when this heron came along. If I hadn't have waited that extra time, I'd still be looking for a decent heron shot.:LOL:

    On the pond thing, our neighbour has quite a large pond, and herons quite often visit it, even taking a decent koi a few years ago.

    Patients is the key with wildlife, guess that’s why I’m not very good at it.

    I enjoy that part, I could sit in nature for hours and hours, quite often do.

    edit, couldn't quote properly for some reason. :thinking:
