My Old Buddy
Lens: DA* 300/4 Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Texas Sea Center 
Posted By: Sailor, 07-12-2019, 03:13 PM

This afternoon, I met up with my old friend, the Heron. I've photographed her/him earlier this year a couple of times, but today I was able to get closer than before. As I write this, I'm drinking a cold one in his/her honor.

Very sharp portrait and the bokeh really highlights the Heron.

If he could see your portrait of him...I'm convinced that he would slide a frog down his throat...in your honor.

Appreciate it Les; I'm hoping he gets all the frogs or crawdad he wants. He's my buddy, after all.

Great shots! Love the detail on the feathers, especially on the second shot. Even got a little feather bokeh/front bokeh on the lower feathers.

Thanks so much. I'm getting know this bird, but the critter's got to learn some new poses!
