This is Harry the very patient Heron, who allowed me to use him as a portable (sometimes too portable!) foreground one evening whilst I was on my honeymoon in the Maldives last week...

8 second exposure using the big stopper!!!

Large is well LARGE if you're interested Smile

You can't go to a desert island paradise and not take your camera can you?????


Thanks for the votes and to Pete for the HC. I loved this the moment I made the exposure but I have to admit I didn't think it would do to well on here. Very pleasantly surprised Smile

Great shot and worthy of the award. Can't believe the heron stayed so still for the picture.

It took me (I think) 5 exposures to get him totally sharp but he was incredibly still, waiting for dinner to swim past, or waiting for one of the many baby Black Tip Reef Sharks to chase dinner to him more like it actually!!!!!

The Heron stands incredibly still and helped this lovely image along.
