As we were walking along the Wildlife Drive at J.N. Ding Darling NWR early in the morning this Yellow-Crowned Night-Heron flew right by us. I was not expecting a photo subject would fly by us but I was able to get this shot before it flew behind the trees. I guess I should be more aware of what was going around me as I was concentrating to get closer to a photo subject in the tree in front of us. Image taken @f/8, 1/4000, ISO 1250, 400mm DO lens, 1.4X Teleconverter, Canon 1D mkIV. I usually do not have my ISO that high but raised it because of the dim early morning light.
Great shot, my compliments !
Have a nice weekend.
Thanks! I hope you have a nice weekend also!
Impressive shot for someone who wasn’t expecting it!
Thanks so much Eliza! Luckily autofocus locked on the heron quickly!
Fabulous, Reed!! 🤗 🤗
