After a week of rain, all this beautiful Canadian air rushed south and left us with the best conditions for fall photography.

Had both the Rebel and the 20D with, the 100 macro with a CP on the rebel and my buddy, the 100-400 on the 20D.

He was just hanging out, so I finally got my shot of a green heron.

That is an awesome shot! I've been trying really hard to get a good shot of these birds. No success to date

STUNNING!!

These birds are normally so skiddish. I've never gotten close enough to get a decent shot.

Sharp, nicely composed. Outstanding!

(Personal cringe: Dang, I've GOT to get that 100-400. It's been talking to me lately, but I've been resisting. This one makes it really hard!!!)

Thank everyone! I've never been closer than 50 yards and then off they go. One thing I learned from everyone here is to keep trying.

As I mentioned before, we had a major rookery fail in this area a few years back. Nice to see it on the mend and the birds returning.

Looks like you had to deal with harsh lighting, but well done. Great separation between foreground and background.
