That's stunning Tom
We're pretty much limited to grey herons in the UK, so seeing this is a bit of a treat

Thanks Colin. I'm partial to Green Herons, and it's always a pleasure to see them. This one was in a neighborhood pond where I have seen them before, but not recently.

I was just reading your posts about this on the 180-600mm discussion.
Its so useful to have real world reports from people using different kit out in the field.

Lets live up this post :)

Beautiful poise and lighting Nasos.

Brute, I like your Corvids too
They look robust and not-to-be-messed with

Thank you Colin for your kind words :)

D500 give me advantages over z50,Z6 for BIF, AF for moving objects is very good, I just got tired to loose shots when the camera didn't  focus on time ;D
That’s for now,  sooner  or later I will take the Z8 or any Z new model road 8)

Great Blue Heron about to swallow whole a meal of a frog or perhaps a small turtle. No teeth for chewing but it seems effortless. Here one moment and gone the next. Strong gastric juices I imagine.
