Watching the sky for a return of the full adults. A humorous evening when this first year Yellow Crowned Night Heron walked over to the end of the shoreline and then within about five feet of me. Of course I'm sitting on the ground behind the tripod mounted rig so I slowly dragged myself and the rig backwards, back to MFD. This was its second approach after an adult had spooked it, then a second adult came and chased off the first one.  Then it hopped up on a nearby post and preened for half an hour, giving me some more opportunities.

Near sunset and with high ISO so of course I'm not thrilled but the experience of being able to examine what is going on is thrilling.  I'll be back for more and hopefully better.  BIF is new to me and challenging. 800mm

Jack,
Nice set of flight!  Like the action.
Can you brighten up, add contrast and maybe sharpen some?  It may help.  Prefer some adjustment over noise.

Thanks guys.  Riley, I don't consider them to be worthy of much work so I didn't do noise reduction etc. and normally wouldn't post them.  My focus was on the birds landing gear and how he drags his toes hitting the water and then elevates them and does his water skiing.  This has whetted my appetite. :)

My biggest thrill 5 years after being introduced to DSLRs remains the knowledge I gain of the creatures I photograph, far more than the pretty pictures, which I like of course. ;)

Jack,
The landing sequence is sure a nice set.
It also speaks well of the camera/lens, too.
Keep going at it.
