    it was still kind of dark when i got to my birding spot this morning, photos are a bit more grainy than i like but i think they still turned out pretty good.

    He don't need one, he has a flipping space hubble astronomy telescope for a lens.

    its not quite a hubble telescope lol, my 600mm lens has a good amount of zoom but allot of the time you are still wishing you had more.. you still get to get close enough to them to get good shots, especially for small birds the closer the better.,

    i do not use a kayak, i am just able to find them in good spots where they hang out that are too terribly far away from where i stand, i almost always still need to crop the photos though unless i find one on the same side of the shore where i am and i can walk over to it. herons around here don't seem to be that worried about people, there have been times when i have been 10 feet away from a heron, maybe less before it started to worry about me being there. even at that point it just kind of slowly starts inching away from me like hey don't get in my personal bubble. other times i was not even close to one and it flew off, not sure if its because it saw me or if it was just ready to fly off anyways.

    These are great wildlife photos. As a very new beginner I went out and shot wildlife this last weekend. Obviously I did not get any shots worth putting up here. Can't wait to go out again hopefully I will get a shot worthy of posting here.
