Heh, I like herons, so this shot really appeals to me.

Wonderful sharpness at the eye, and I hope that the folks who post how "unusable" ISO 1600 is will take a gander at your lovely shot.

Thanks, while this was on an "evil" camera I didn't find the ISO 1600 noise any more objectionable on the K20D to be honest. I am perfectly fine with cranking the ISO as much as needed -- rather have a sharp shot with a little noise than a blurry one. (And I was at the edge of what I can do, holding a non-stabilized 400mm lens at 1/200 -- ISO 800 would have been a no go)

I shoot some shots/situations in TVA mode and let camera decide ISO and very seldom run noise control program.. jim
