I’ve been stalking this guy for a week. He hung around for 3 days, and I took lots of pictures, but he was just too far away. Today I trekked out to his tree, and got this picture.
absolutely beautiful. you did a great job
Thank you Terry. I was really fascinated by him.
i would have been too. I love taking nature photos
Don’t know why this was in spam, but only just found it! Thanks!
oh, this is beautiful. great hook, I was wondering who you might be stalking!
Hehe. He was around for three days, and then left. Then I saw him again today!
Love this picture Arnel!
At first glance he looks almost cartoon-like 🙂
Thanks! It’s weird to see such a big bird hanging around here!
Thanks Jules! I was so excited to see him again!
This is stunning. Great work!
What camera do you have? I love your photography! (I know the camera doesn’t make the photo, the artist does, but I am sure a good camera helps.)
A good camera does help, but I’ve seen amazing photos with all types of cameras! I have a Canon 5D MarkIII, but I actually took this photo with my hubs camera, which is a canon 7D. And, the lens I used was the VERY inexpensive stock camera that came with my sons camera, the canon 75-300mmIII, the cheapest 75-300 they make, which retails for 199.00. I used my husbands because his is a medium sensor while mine is a full sensor. For something far away, the additional crop factor on the 7D was helpful to bring the subject closer.
I need to take some photography classes because most of what you said went over my head and it lingering above me in a bubble surrounded by question marks. LOL. Like I said before, your pictures are outstanding. Have you published them in a book?
Thank you! I have not published them in a book. My project for 2013 is a floral coffee table book though. 🙂
YOU SHOULD!!! It would be amazing!
Thank you, UC! I shall endeavor to do my best for 2013.
Fantastic capture!! Well worth the wait :).
Thanks! He flew away, and I thought he was gone for good until I saw him again today.
Wow! He[?] looks like a drawing!
Your patience paid off beautifully!
I noticed he’s back again today–in the pouring rain!
Wow…what a bird and what a picture….Diane
Thanks! He was amazing. He’s left his perch, but I’m hoping he comes back!

Why, thank you! 🙂
Worth the stalk and the wait I’d say.
Definitely! I’ve been waiting for him to return so I could have another go. He really fascinates me…
Absolutely stunning Arnel! Herons always remind me of Japanese scrolls 🙂
I’ve never thought of them that way, and you are right! They really do!
