Nice captures but the last one is a Green Heron, not Blue Heron.

Little Blue Heron:

Wonderful captures of each bird, with excellent representation of each unique "personality" as well.

Yes. I just posted them in a dofferent order than I titled the thread, but I knew it was a green heron.


Even still I had never heard of or seen the little blue heron.

Enjoyed the series but you must have been really happy with capturing the fast moving swallow. Really good job.

I've been enjoying the heck out of this K-3II since getting it. Its a much nicer experience than my old K-5 was.

I target practice on these guy often at a local lake. They are so nimble that its difficult to even keep them in the view finder. This is a rare one that I actually got a halfway decent shot of.

Thank you. I've really enjoyed this combo. Also, this was my first set since adding the Metz 50 AF-1 flash... The fill flash really helps bring out some details I think.
