Early morning greeting from a grey heron!

It was such a delight to be greeted by this grey heron perched on a neighbour's roof at the bottom of our garden the other morning, before the sun had fully risen.


I consider these 'grab' shots! I wasn't ready at all; the camera didn't have the right settings and I was using a big 3kg telephoto, hand held, through the kitchen window which was well overdue for a clean, notwithstanding raindrops on the glass as well

Re: Early morning greeting from a grey heron!

Whether you were prepared or not. Whether you had the correct settings or not.

It is always worth taking the shot, as you have proved here.

I have done this in the past, and although they didn't produce the perfect image. They did provide a very good visual record of the sighting.

I think Garry's said it all - It's always worth going for it.
