I was deleting folders but decided I had better take another look first so I'm glad I did. I took a LOT that day and still haven't went through them all really.

Kind of you to comment, thank you.

I know thats not going to stop you Tom, you'll get it. You always impress me with the shots you get from that M 400/5.6
Thanks a bunch for the comment.

Great shot Oren!
Is that a little snake or maybe an eel?

Great shot! I have never been able to get a shot of a Heron in flight that was worth keeping.

Thanks Tom, its an eel. Theres a spot on the Puget Sound , when the tide goes out the herons gather. There were at least 20 birds that day all feeding on eels. Boy, was I having a time of my life.

Thanks reeftool, I appreciate the comment. I get a fair bit of practice because the Herons are plentiful and not real timid here.
