    While cruising the waters to the northwest of Berlin on the chartered yacht, we had many heron sightings, but I only got few showable photos of them :(. My 300mm lens still isn't enough (and not good enough) when it comes to photographing water fowl, I'm afraid...

    I left all these uncropped so you can see how close I could get to them maximum.

    The one in Photos 2-4 was a real ham, we went by his lookout on the boat and he saw me and then POSED (4) :D

    And my only one pic of a heron in flight (getting nearer and nearer to where the sun was, and my settings were not right, aargh :shock: )

    Oh dear. Look at Ray's latest pics of herons and mine ... no wonder no one comments ... in comparison these are only snapshots. And I was so happy about these! You should (or better should NOT) see all the BLOOPERS I produced over the time we were on that yacht, cruising the waters northwest of Berlin... :roll:

    hey Corinna! It is a good start.. you can always excuse yourself that your lens is not comparable to Ray's, can't you?! I do the same :D

    LaFoto, those are really nice captures of herons! You should be proud of those. I really like 1, 4 and 5 especially.

    Birds. Ah yes. I'm afraid to shoot any of these, b/c from what I can tell it's addicting. And leads to long expensive glass.

    Great job with these, Corrina!

    Very nice series. #1 stand out to me, such a graceful bird and beautiful capture of the water.
