Luke, this has to be one of the best shots. The clarity and details are stunning. Larger shot is amazing, show's a lot of details.

Well done mate.

Stunning pic, and I can see why you used a 2x convertor. They are geeeets near me, as soon as you get within' 100m or so they are up and away. Cracking shot...

The heron is different from the ones I see--the dark feathers on the neck and soe other details---( i live in Penna. and the herons I see are on the Big Spring Creek-occaisionally on our river and once in awhile they rob our millpond. ) Thanks for the image and the info!
