Beautiful bird beautifully captured! Happy New Year WPRESTO.
A calf eats in the safety of mom's presence. It had a small tantrum at the approach of my car but settled down. Mom must have rumbled something to it.

A green heron that suspects there's something in the water just below.

Nice Green Heron, I chased this one around last summer. This was one of the best shots I got. It is a heavy crop on the Bigma.

Nice timing capturing him with his crest up. As you can see from the EXIF data, the image I posted was taken back when I was still using the K20 and 55~300.

That is extremely impressive with the K20D. I was never able to get shots like these with my K10D. I just never had enough light. This is same Green Heron when he got to the top. Right after this shot he flew off. Both images were shot at ISO 2500 on the K3 and Bigma. They were taken deep in the woods.

Little blue heron (corrected id), another K20 + 55~300, focus on the body so the head is a touch soft.
