A few more shots of my heron fishing partner from today. I've neglected him for the past several days, but today he was patiently waiting for a long while on my chain link fence, so I caved. I've wasted several loaves of bread on him in the past week or so, but today he finally caught another fish. Word about the free food is getting out. Eight ducks swam up to us and consumed another loaf of my bread and interfered so much with the heron, he finally left.

Since this thread started off as bird portraits, here's a family portrait.

Duck shots added too for the heck of it.

Serendipidy - thanks, maybe I'm not practised enough but I find birds in flight are so hard to do well. I wonder how many keepers the real professional guys get from a trip. No doubt they have a way higher hit rate but it would be nice to know they miss shots too!

BIF are difficult to master...I'm still trying to learn how to do it well. Good equipment and practice is what I have deduced from this forum. Your shots are well on the way. :)

Thanks for the comment. I have to thank nature for the lighting, I just stood there and pressed a button!

The original image was a crop of the image below as I thought it maybe worked better.

Regards.

Eastern Spine Bill (male). A couple of them were flitting through my garden this afternoon. Finally managed to get a few clear pic's as they were feeding in the Correa bush. While it has the look of a flash lit pic, no, the winter sun happened to pop out for 10min :)

Stunning, both the cropped and un-cropped versions. I love a good BW :)
