  1. Great shot. The Canon does amazing work at such high ISO. I wouldn’t try that with my camera. Well done.

  2. Or Grey Heron (, which is at home in Europe? It’s a great shot. Seeing it on a picture is a lot less stressful than looking out the window to the pond behind the house just in time to see one of these guys eat all but two of your goldfish. Oh well, nature at its best.
