Number 3 a heron?
Alan, you have to "close your eyes" to see properly!!! Here is my contribution to a unknown bird... I was actually looking for some sea birds in fly. This one came that big - I had to step 3 steps behind to get it in frame - not! :ROFLMAO:)! I was with the prime 500mm.

And my second bird species from today: got it in the last few moments before it was not for the BIF topic!
Actually I was taking photos of flowers when I notice some commotion with my peripheral vision - got there little bit later but at least got something. Actually I don't know why I always ignore the Cattle Egrets in fly?

Beautiful morning here, unusually warm out and just a few clouds. First real opportunity to take the R3 out for a spin. All these are SOOC jpg shot with the R3 + 100-500 and one of the TC's.

This guy just popped in over my left shoulder closer and surprised me, they don't usually like to be that close. Luckily I had just swapped in my 1.4x instead of the 2x TC. Curious...which do folks generally prefer, the moment just before contact, or the feet gently breaking the surface

After a few minutes with this character, someone walking their dog spooked him. I caught the getaway... R3_100_1973_C1_Web.jpg

Much better than the "getaway" I usually capture, which typically looks more like this...

My first try on BIF. I have to say, I struggled a lot to get acceptable shots. So please be patient with me. I will fail better. :LOL:
