Heron, Way Too Close

Technically these should be deletes. The bird flew by so close he filled my view finder. The lens was pulled back as far as possible.

The only reason I had focus was I use the back button method. Hold in the button and keep focus. I held the button, and camera tight before I got knocked over. Well, fell over from leaning back for the shot.

I kept, and published them, because it’s not often you can see such detail of a 5 foot bird zooming by.

Fun photographs, no award winners. But interesting.
