Blue Heron at the pond
Lens: SMC-K 200mm Camera: K-5 ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/2500s Aperture: F11 
Posted By: Riggomatic, 06-18-2017, 05:45 PM

I was at the in-laws today, and grabbed a couple shots with the SMC-K 200mm of a Blue Heron. I was walking around the edge, looking for something to photograph, when I saw this big guy. Actually, he saw me, and took off

Thanks for looking!

Local heron usually does alert me to his presence by his departure.
