About the Image(s)

Went over to check out if little baby chick is coming out, but guess not, but seen this couple showing exceptional welcoming when its partner come in, jump up, touch, cuddle, etc.

500mm pf, with TC 1.4. f/8, 1/1600, -1/3 EV. spot meter, hand held. (was going in to quick check).

Post process: light adjustment, Topaz AI deNoise, Sharpen, and rid of few twigs, dirty spot on sensor.

I think you found your calling as a bird photographer. Another great shot! The interaction between the two blue herons and their wing positions really make this image. I can't think of any suggestions on how to improve it. Question: Did you use a burst mode when shooting this image or a single-shot mode?   Posted: 05/08/2022 17:22:24

For this, burst mode, quick 3 shots, pulse, then another round, found that most effective. Thanks   Posted: 05/11/2022 20:27:39

Your bird photos have been excellent! You stopped the action well and caught the moment. Great details and clarity. I wouldn't change a thing! This would be a winner.   Posted: 05/11/2022 20:28:43

Are you sure this wasn't a conflict between two birds or a moment in a mating ritual?! Hand-holding and getting this quality is impressive.   Posted: 05/18/2022 22:05:35
