    Absolutely beautiful day here today and Chris rang up and said "White Heron is in" that was it :) so met him there and a couple of other mates turned up as well. Fun day.

    NEX-7 and Canon FD 500 F/4.5L

    White Heron (Egret) and less than a 100 of these in NZ, only two in the capital city region here and we love seeing this one.

    DSC06669.

    DSC06629.

    Then off to the estuary for a few Kingfisher, White faced Herons and Stilt shots


    White faced Heron's

    DSC06557.

    DSC06558.


    And some Sacred Kingfisher shots

    ~DSC06776.

    DSC06780-2.

    DSC06777.


    And finally a couple of Stilt shots

    So a good day for shooting and it looks like it might be another good day tomorrow :)

    All the best folks.

    I think the Heron set is stunning - I would go so far as to say the best you've posted on here so far Danny, in my humble opinion. The sharpness and clarity is stunning, great stuff !
