Little blue herons certainly are attractive looking birds, Bill. Nicely captured!

Taking lots of pictures, this one taken yesterday came out pretty good. Cropped and resized for posting. Using the Tamron 150-600 G2. Getting a lot of OOF shots. Playing with settings. Had VC set to mode 3 (probably pushed the button by accident), moving to mode 2. Any suggestions welcome.

Rod

Edit: I am using a gimbal. Might be important to know. Maybe I should turn VC off.

To me, this one is a little more dramatic.
So far it looks like we have two mating pairs looking for food in this area.

Great shots, especially with falling light, I'd say you nailed it. Very nice.

Thank you for the nice compliment
