This Heron was a nice distance for me. I try to catch shots in the mid range of a long lens whenever possible. They can have good depth and be wide enough to include the surroundings.
It’s great to see the subjects details however I personally to some perspective too.
In these you can see some shoreline, cypress trees, and even a couple Alligators in the background.
Over the years everyone gets a style and preferences. I guess these are mine.
