Marsh Harrier

By MariaElaine
This was taken yesterday at Far Ings Nature Reserve, using my Canon 7D with 300mm plus 1.4ex.
I have been trying to capture birds there for some time, but I realise my real problem is not having a large enough lens, I was very lucky with this shot as it did come closer than usual but I have still had to crop it a lot. Anyhow to date this is one of two good shots I managed to take yesterday, ny best to date.

well done on this fine capture, the trick is to get the birds to come closer to you,not nessasarily to own a massive expensive lens!!!!!
