Little Blue Heron
5dIII and 100-400mmL
1/1600th
f/5.6
iso - 3200

Sadly, it was getting dark out when i saw this guy coming home from shooting a quick Real Estate gig in jpeg.  Totally forgot to change my settings!  I hate it when that happens!!  I go from this ;D to this  :-X

Right when I realized, I stopped to switch back over to Raw and someone walked up and scared him with a Boo!  Why would one do that?

Hi Ken,

Fantastic blue heron shots. Great work. That little heron is sooo cute and I love the expressions on his face. 8)

Here's a young Red-tailed hawk. (7D, ISO800, 1/2000s, 500mm, F/4.5)

Beautiful shot Moobark. Well done Sir.

Thanks all. Have the shot that told me I should stop pestering the poor thing. (7D, ISO100, 1/1600s, F/5.6, 500mm)
As a bonus, here's a Sharp-shinned hawk. (7D, ISO100, 1/400s, F/7.1, 700mm)

Each afternoon, when I start helping Harry catch his fish dinner, these same two male Brazilian cardinals immediately show up out of nowhere for a bread handout. They will both approach quite closely if I don't give them a morsel right away. Yesterday, after they got their meal, they both took off and returned several minutes later with a dozen of their female friends who all wanted a bread handout, too. It was quite a ruckus for a few minutes, fighting over the bread crumbs I threw at my feet. ;D

Here's one...5D3, 100-400L

Nice job on the Brazilian Cardinal. Well done Serendipidy.  :)

Hi, here (after a long abstinence) a few "Watery Birds". Nothing special but I do like the Bokeh in the water.
I'm glad you've all being keeping standards up while I was busy <G>
Cheers Brian
I like the green in the water too! Lovely!

Thanks Krob78!  On why people would scare them, you got me.  Everyone seems against bullying people but animals/birds, that seems ok. 

Another cool Cardinal shot serendipidy!

I keep trying to catch the larger birds like the Jays & Acorn Woodpeckers on takeoff.  Much harder than waterfowl it seems.
