|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Our district has quite a number of Grey Herons and Heronry's (communal nesting areas) but although we see them I find it difficult to get close enough to get decent pictures. They are very wily and shy for such a large bird. I took this one at the Leighton Moss Nature Reserve, RSPB, near Silverdale Village at about 50 metres. It was hunting the edges of a lagoon for round fish and eels.|
Camera settings:- ISO 200, AV, Spot metering, 840mm focal length, 1.4x converter, Remote shutter cord.

You did great to get this shot it is a very good picture of a herron. I find that the herrons are usually hard to get close o here as well but sometimes you luck out by finding one that doesn't mind people so much. All the best,
