I'm not sure how much wood he could chuck, but he was grabbing and eating that bush with the thorns on it like it was filet mignon. We would be screaming in agony everytime we grabbed it. LOL.

I was actually watching a Blue Heron when he came up about 20-40 feet away from me and started eating the bush. I was actually in my car at the time. I rattled off around 10 shots of him, not knowing if I had anything worth saving until I got home and pulled them up on the computer.

I was using the 100-400L at around 380mm I think. They are cropped probably around 25%.

Love it when a plan comes together. My 100-400 always amazes me. By far the best lens I own. It never leaves my camera anymore unless I'm inside.
