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

Nice close-up Senrendipidy  8) Getting closer every day.  ;)

Dear Surapon

I found the first one, the Canon body, very funny. I especially like the controls on this one.  ;D

The Japanese girl is very cute though.  8)

Thank you for making us smile with your good sense of humour.

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...


Very nice job Don!  8)

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


Very nice pictures Serendipidy, I like your shots. Cute story too . Enjoy the time that you spend with your heron friend, and bring us more photos.   :)

Great shot Pierre. Very sharp. Perfect timing on the kick.

The Canon 200-400 is an awesome lens.
