    Default Heron

    I stalked him through long sedgy coastal grass, hoping to get a leaping off shot. Got nice and close, took some stills, then noticed the dog creeping forward. Loud stage whisper, "STAY", turned and got the herons body in flight, minus a head.
    Dogs and nature photography don't mix. But I knew that!

    Well what you didmget there is really nice. Coming from Canon I am really amazed at what these m4/3 cameras can do.

    Thanks for commenting John.
    Actually I usually use a 1D3 for BIF, but the m4/3 are getting darned close for IQ. I'm holding out hopes for Olympus announcements later this year.

    You are not the only one hanging out, if you look at the buy and sell even an E5 for $875 isn't moving. Nice shot by the way just a shame he/she wasn't a little lower.

    Nice Don, you should try shooting birds with three cats following you around the yard

    I am gonna have to take the OMD out with a long lens and give it a go at birds. I messed around in the yard but was really not happy with AF time... but maybe if I get out in the open in good light

    The pole is 25 ft high. I politely asked him to come down, but he just said "Scraaak"!

    They sure are curious when a camera appears, like a magnet!

    The 50-200 gives great IQ on M4/3, and with the newer brighter models, MF is quite good given it is the only practical focus method. I enjoy using that combo.
