The second shot should be framed and hung - it is perfect (color, background, sharpness) - great job.

It looks like that tripod was leaning a little forward..I wonder if that monster lens had anything to do with it. :lol: Glad you had your left hand holding onto it...I'd hate to see that fall forward.

Great set. ;)

Thanks for your comments.

I was on a bit of a slope. I just plonked it down quickly to get a snap before the heron moved. With the gimball head, the camera and lens is perfectly balanced and the weight was pretty evenly distributed on the 3 feet of the tripod.

Even an equivalent 1560mm focal length on the last image, it was pretty sharp considering the shutter speed of 1/30 sec :shock:
