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. 1. 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) 2. 3. 4. 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: ) 5.
