Great Blue Heron
Lens: Sun Opt Auto Zoom 85-210mm Camera: K10D ISO: 200 Aperture: F4.8 
Posted By: Knock, 12-21-2014, 08:51 AM

I screwed on my seldom used Sun Zoom and chased around a beautiful blue heron at a local park. I found myself wishing I had a lens that could reach slightly further than the 210mm maximum I was using (maybe Santa will bring me a 300mm tak). I preferred the black and white processing, as this lens seems to have a bit of CA at times.

The first one is gorgeous; a study in contrasts.

Great shots really. The first one gives a total isolation. Good stuff man.

Love the B&W ones, but the color takes the cake! Beautiful work!
