No superlatives in part one? Bloody hell, absolutely amazing, the Night Heron has not only flown towards us... but landed in a bank side bush in full view! It doesn't look close, does it but it's less than 10m from the bank!
The only questions being asked were, how quickly can I get the converter off and why hadn't I got a shorter focal length lens with me (again)
OK, Converter is now removed but it's still frame filling!!
And walking closer... OMG!
Now there's no alternative, a close up fest beckons...
I'm staying calm!
I was almost relieved when it flew back over to the other side of the pool? Noooo, it''s still too close! (Only kidding) :-)
And if you've never seen a Night Heron's tongue?
I walked around to the far bank - the shot I'd been hankering for - Shrewsbury Night Heron - in habitat!!
Just another ordinary day turned rather extraordinary!!! You couldn't have scripted this?
