I was out at a local park this morning with my new 40D hoping to get a little Bird In Flight practice on some sea gulls or geese when I came across this Great Blue Heron. I waited & watched him standing on that log for about 45 minutes hoping he fly off at some point. I finally gave up and started walking away, I turned around to take one more look back and what do ya know... he's flying! I managed to get a few decent shots.
All taken using the 40D & 300mm with 1.4x TC
C & C always welcome
