I usually don't do much bird photography, but as I was shooting at a local lake there was a crane just standing still in the water. It was dark out so I needed a long shutter speed to expose it properly (luckily I was already using a tripod). I don't think 5 seconds is par for the course when doing bird photography, but the crane stood still enough that it came out pretty clear =). Thoughts?

I like it- an interesting composition.

An interesting technique. Not something I've seen posted here before, nice job.

This is however a Great Blue Heron.

Nice picture; I'm impressed that it stood that still that long. As mentioned, you got a Great Blue Heron there rather than a Crane.

I would be curious to see the color version, too.

Ah, my bad; I'm not the best with identifying birds :)

Here is the color version, I'm not a huge fan of it =/

thanks :) I guess I'd have to agree, it's a bit heavy in the color version.

I definitely prefer the B&W version.
