Since it´s a portrait thread, I suppose this is more appropriate ...

First Great Blue Heron seen this year.... the shot was through a chain link fence and focused so as to make the links of the fence almost invisible. If you look closely at the picture you can make them out... they are the slightly brighter diagonal diamond pattern.

Don, it's apparent that there is something but I wouldn't have guessed a fence.  Very nice.

Goes to show it's still better to try the shot anyway.

Agreed, the fence is hardly noticeable at all.

Pretty good result considering the chain fence in the way!

After seeing this, I guess I won't worry as much anymore about a little dust on the front element.  ;D

I shot them at the west side of a lake called Østensjøvannet, in Oslo, Norway. They have two couples there this year. To me this bird, with its mating dance, is a clear 3-star Michelin equivalent.
