These shots are why I switched (temporary) to a shorter lens. Everything has grown tall, thick, and in the way of a shot. A shorter lens seems better for now.
Case in point this Heron. He walked past me only a few meters away in the swamp. Next coming out in the open to look around for a while.
Above, the bent knee signal of taking flight, and I focused.
However, if the lens is too big (taken at 150mm) it’s impossible to get the full frame correct.
Still a few nice images, and a story to go with them.
Even better he was back, with a friend, almost immediately. That’s why he was looking all around in the first place. They were chasing each other.
