Nice pics Krob ... you are very lucky to have such beautiful birds in your area (of course it isn't just luck and you are very talented in getting those lovely pics) ... we hardly get to see any birds here, coz there are hardly any trees ... but the desert landscape is slowly changing here and we are getting to see some more birds these days.
Thank you so much Rienz!  I appreciate your kindness.  I do feel quite blessed often times out shooting for the wildlife we have surrounding us here.  Interestingly enough, many locals ask me often, "Where do you see all these birds at?"  I just laugh to myself really, thinking, stop what you're doing, take a look around!  They're everywhere!  :)

Thanks Click!  That means a lot, I appreciate your comments!  :D

Ken, I assume you've been using the old trick?
You know, the old fish on your head and then keep very still....
Indeed!   ;D  My girlfriend doesn't appreciate the smell of my hair particularly but I come home with some decent images from time to time!    ::)

It doesn't look to be "from time to time". Keep them coming.

....Just a little bit closer.
I don't think I can squeeze anymore detail out of my equipment unless I climb the tree .

Dropped my beloved 300L F4 IS a few weeks ago. No physical damage but the IS stopped working. Sent to Canon a fre weeks ago, picked it up from Purolator this morning and went on a road strait away.

Back in action. Taken with my 7D.

Krob78, Mr. Otter, Barrfly, digital paradise and all you other photogs....very beautiful and inspiring shots. Looking at your work keeps me interested in pursuing this hobby and trying to make photographs like you can :)

Some I took at dusk today in my yard. This young heron has been coming around for about a month when I feed the fish in the canal, but he was never able to catch a fish in several dozen tries....until now. This tilapia was large and it took him several minutes to finally swallow. :P

Taken with a 7D and 100-400mm L @ 400mm. Almost dusk and was very overcast (started to rain as I took the last shot), so I used a 580 on camera flash with a better beamer. I am a total noob when it comes to flash since I never use it and haven't yet learned. I think these were overexposed and so I had to try and fix it with DPP. Constructive advice welcome. Thanks. :)

I'm jealous that you can get so close, our local Herons will fly off when I'm about 50 meters away. I think the last three are overexposed, how díd you meter? I just got a better beamer and have yet to use it outside, so I'm not sure how to advise yet, if at all. I would have thought spot metering on the white of the bird and the automatic should take care of the rest, I assume its just normal fill-in flash techniques.
Some other BB users are bound to know.
Cheers Brian
