Silver Wings


I spotted this bird first a few weeks ago and have been hoping to catch up with it since.
The white-faced heron (Egretta novaehollandiae) is also known as the white-fronted heron. It is common
throughout most of Australasia. It is a wader and can be found almost anywhere near shallow water. If disturbed
it departs the scene promptly on long, slow-beating wings, but not before I was able to catch it ‘napping’ down by the creek.


This lens has makes me feel like Mickey, the sorcerer’s apprentice, with a magic picture-taking
wand in which I’m not yet fully trained and cannot stop shooting pictures because I don’t know how!

210mm from about 30 metres

Thanks OM, and sorry for the belated repy. I'm afraid that like many things these days, I lost sight of my own thread. Sad.
If I'm doing well then it's all due to the new gear that is enabling me to achieve some of my birding aspirations held for some years.
