The colour in this photo is incomparable.  Absolutely gorgeous.

I saw a heron at the local park (many tend to avoid the busy area) and as I was leaving, I mentioned the sighting to some women leading their children in that direction.  I said to them, "There's a heron fishing by the bridge.  You can probably still see it."  One woman turned to me looking utterly perplexed and asked, "A what?"  Thinking she hadn't heard, I repeated, "A heron."  Again, "A what?"  By this point, I was just baffled, but nonetheless I responded, "A heron."  One more, "A what?" and I just walked away, totally flummoxed.  How do you grow up in Ontario and not know what a heron is?

Sorry, this just reminded me of that, lol

Stunning tricolor! Lighting is perfect. What kind of gear are you using?
FForns's avatar
I believe I used the Nikon D3 and the 200-400/4 hand held.

Thanks for the reply! Wow awesome gear! Yeah that 200-400 is a sick lens! If I shot Nikon I would definitely get one.

I'm doing Canon now, after they got the 1d4 that works.
