Study in Grey

Observed: 2nd May 2012 By: jccurdjccurd’s reputation in Birdsjccurd’s reputation in Birdsjccurd’s reputation in Birdsjccurd’s reputation in Birds

On a particularly grey though dry day, here's a Grey Heron against a flat grey sky. They will keep moving their wing tips and feet, though. Keep still!

I'm very surprised I'm the first to congratulate you on an excellent image John. Personally to capture any bird in flight is an achievement. I have been told that as long as the birds eye is in focus, the movement of wings does not take away from the image.

Very Gracious

You are all very kind, thank you. I was actually trying some different settings on my new camera. ;-)

Agreed -

Not wishing to cause a congratulatory overload, but it is really very good.
