Fantastic shot of this heron Colin, we have blue herons around here but, in all my years of trying, I haven't got a shot of one yet, they sit like this until I'm just about ready to have a go, that's when they take off Sad

I think as far as detail and focus on the eye is concerned this is a real cracker - I'm sorry Colin but I really would have like to see the legs as well or perhaps a different comp. Ina

Quote:The heron being a large bird when you focus on the eye at times its difficult to get the whole bird in but you have managed this very well and same time have great detail

I agree Colin a great eye but you haven't got the whole bird in but that doesn't matter. You can always lock the focus and reposition or move the focus points. I might have cropped higher to balance the image out and also if possible readjusted to give more space in front as it looks very squashed in frame. Also watch the sharpening as there is evidence of a halo around the bird caused from this, something I have been picked up on lately with contrasty bg's
