I was gonna take a day off from heron fishing, but my wife said my heron had been sitting on the concrete wall in front of my house for over an hour waiting for me and I should get out there and feed our heron. It's hard to refuse a "suggestion" like that from my wife, so I quickly defrosted some frozen bread and grabbed my 7D and 100-400L. It was 6PM and getting dark and I forgot my Better Beamer (wish I would have had it). The heron caught 2 large tilapia and 8 small minnow sized ones. The 2 big fish really put up a fight, flapping vigorously for several minutes, but they never got loose. After I used up all the bread, shortly thereafter, as usual, he flies and lands 6-8 feet from me on the concrete bridge wall and just stares at me. A little unnerving since he seems to get an inch closer every day. :P

Seridipidy, I envy the relationship.  All I have are these dumb ducks that apparantly are eating the weed on the pond.  Round and round back and forth shaking their beaks rapidly in the water not caring about me at all, and this isn't a park.  The other ducks high tail it.

Guess soon the Heron will be eating from your hand!

Nice photo. At least the weeds are free...I have to keep buying loaves of bread :P

I thought about trying to entice him to eat from my hand (I'd have to hold a fish, since herons won't eat bread). But the pointy beak, sharp claws and those "Terminator" red eyes made me abandon the idea ;D

lol...funny seridipidy!  nice heron photos too!
The herons at my place (Great Blue Heron) won't let me get closer than about 150-200 feet before flying off, and you have to very quiet and still to get that close... I sit motionless in the canoe and slowly drift near. I have been inspired by the "heron with fish" shots, so I wanted to try to get one.. not very graceful looking as it strikes, but it worked...

shot with a 60D and 400F5.6, HEAVILY!! cropped...

Don,
Great shots...requires a lot more skill to get captures like that at 200 feet instead of 8-10 feet, especially when the subject is not co-operating. I'm very lucky to have such a hungry and easily tempted heron. Nice action series. :)

Here's a couple from New Mexico around where I live, and a condor I ran into while on a geology filming expedition in the Grand Canyon.

The first (western tanagers) was with the 60D and 70-200 f/2.8L II and the other two (osprey and Cali Condor) were with the 5D3 and 70-200 f/2.8L  II

Nice BIF shots...I like the tanagers the most :)

Well, I guess that answers your question.  As always, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is...

Yes, but it comes with a Nikon bag ;D

The Performing Bear shot is an iconic Polar Bear Pose.

Could have come straight from Fox's Glacier Mints !

It was shot @ 200mm on the 200-400f/4, I was backing down the side of the vessel trying to get the Bear + Berg in the Picture, I had my 70-200f/2.8 set up on the other 1Dx Body but didn't want to change Cameras at this Point, others onboard got the larger Picture which looked good as well, but at times this Lady performed like she was Circus Trained, amazing stuff to see in the Wild. Fortunately my Lad was with me & got the whole thing on Video.
Lovely shots. All of them. As usual :)

Awesome! I like the second one especially.

My heron friend waits for me every afternoon to go fishing with him. He is still afraid to get closer than about 8 feet. When I run out of bread, he flies over and lands on the concrete bridge wall about 8 feet from me and just stares at me, until I leave. Today he caught about 5 or 6 fish (2 were fairly good sized). One tiny fish jumped out of his beak and landed in the water and got away. Another bigger one flipped out of his beak, but wasn't close enough to the water and got recaptured rather quickly.
7D, 100-400L @160mm and 400mm, f/6.3

Sounds awesome. I wish I could do similar trips. When you're going? How detailed trip plan you already have, or do you just go around without much plan?

Serendipity rules.
