About This Image

I wish I had better than a 3X lens. This guy flew up fairly close to me and landed here. I was standing in the back of my truck, trying to get a good shot at an egret which was also flying around the area. He just sat there as long as I was attached to the truck. The moment I stepped away, he flew off. I never did get a shot at the egret. Can't figure this. It was on the desert with no water anywhere around.

Thanks all. I like this one too. Especially the clouds in the background.

I love it! I feel the 3X zoom lens pain, too.. but maybe it's better not so close, I like the environment you added.

Looks like he's posing to be sculpted into a weathervane!

That is a maginificent silloutte. I have a couple of shots of egrets, but they don't come close. Love the clouds as a background.

Great shot. Have not been able to capture one myself yet.

Wow!!! Now that is a shot. That is beautiful. I need to go out for a walk without Patches to try to get a bird shot.

lovely shot and scene, Gary. Haven't been able to capture a heron around here yet, altho we have many Great Blue Herons. If we had a truck, would try your method : ) - well we do have one but it's "enclosed"
