Thanks Steven.

I took this picture around 6:30 in the morning while kayaking.
For this shot, I used a 7D and a Canon 500 f4L with monopod.  EXIF 1/400 f8 ISO 200

I often combine kayaking and photography.  :)

Harry the Terminator said he'd be back! Caught a big one an hour ago. Also, my Brazilian Cardinal friend usually appears for a bread handout whenever Harry and I are fishing.

7D, 100-400L, f/7.1, handheld, ISO 320

How close were you for that remarkable shot, and how did you get that close?

Thanks, Alan for the kind words. I was probably about 7-10 feet or so, and was above him several feet. In this area, the canal ditch has a concrete slope down to the waters edge where I toss bread crumbs. When he gets a fish, he quickly runs up away from the water and away from me. I move off the bridge and onto the ground above him. He is cautious and so I move slow enough not to spook him too much. I can usually get about 8-12 feet and then start shooting. I cropped this 400mm shot somewhat to emphasize the fish more. No other heron will let me get closer than 20-30 feet, but this guy gets close because he knows I will get him easy fish ;D

Eastern Yellow Robin.
Trying a slightly new technique this weekend, an on-camera fill flash, to give better light in the shadows, without overdoing it. When it works, it works well. The biggest downside is the birds are put off by the flash going off. Oh well.... :)
