CommentPart of this White-faced Heron’s hunting technique was to wade for a while and then remain absolutely motionless for extended periods in anticipation of catching breakfast, allowing the water ripples to completely disappear. This presented some pleasing reflection opportunities where the bird was statue like on a still pond of crystal clear water. I was pleased that the morning sunrise ‘golden hour’ light turned the water gold, complementing the Heron’s legs, while the black and grey background rocks complement both the Heron’s beak and feathers.
EquipmentCanon 7D Mark II with Canon EF 600mm f4/L USM non IS lens at 600mm, 1/160 sec, f5, ISO 500 on tripod.
