Grey Heron in flight.
exif data 1/1000 @ f6.7, lens at 80mm.
Have been trying to get one of these for weeks , this is a excellent shot.. TED
Even getting close to a Heron is tricky, great capture!
How did you get close enough to use 80mm?
Very nice Clive, well detailed capture.
well caught - a beauty. Never realised they had pointy claws!
This is a wonderful image.....could be my passport photo ;o)
Theres something very special capturing a bird in flight. Youve done it very effectively.
Great in flight capture and nicley framed, I do find the rear bird distracting though, have you thought of cloning it out, could possibly make the image stronger.
Beautiful capture, well done.
Well done Clive, great work and superb timing.
Fantastic shot, well done
Just a brilliant shot
Wow, nice catch!

great composition also find the rear bird distracting next time take a air rifle (only joking)but great shot.
All my heron shots are so naff....this is excellent. Jealous, me???? You bet!
Fantastic capture, wonderful.

Amazing capture well taken.
This is fab, well taken
Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to comment, they are all much appreciated.
In answer to the questions,
Chris & Jim the Herons were allowing me to get to about 20' in front of them. A few times dogs in the park would along the path and scare them. This was when I captured this picture as a bird flew within feet of me and began to change direction.
Steve, I did think about cloning out the other bird. However I liked it and thought it added a sense of ddepth to the image which I liked so I left it in.
Thanks again Clive
Great work Clive, a nicely detailed and well timed capture.
Superb flight shot.
