Heron Catch
Lens: DA 300 with 1.4x tc Camera: KP Photo Location: Pensacola, Florida ISO: 1600 Shutter Speed: 1/800s Aperture: F5.6

It was an overcast day and foggy - not the best day for taking bird photos, but I did manage to catch this Great Blue Heron catching his dinner. Maybe I would have gotten more in-focus shots if I had taken off the teleconverter.

Great series. I'd say you did very well in those conditions. Even in muted light you captured good detail in all the shots. I may have to invest in that lens. It produces great results.

Thanks. It was pretty cool to catch, really. It took the bird about 10 minutes to get the fish ready to swallow.

I see nothing wrong at all with these images in the muted cloud-light!
A very natural and clean-looking image with that light.
Good shooting!
Angky.

Thank you Angky. I did apply some noise reduction on most shots and a bit of sharpening on a couple, all in Camera Raw.

Great blue herons are habit forming subjects and this series shows why .

Very good series, especially under the circumstances. I use the same Lense with the 1.4 converter and see no difference in focus accuracy or speed with or without the convertor.
