GBH, when a 400mm lens is too long ! (pics)
Jul 28, 2013

Well, here Great Blue Herons are difficult to get close, but once in awhile you encounter a very cooperative one.

At first it flew away because i didn't saw him, but he came back close to me at around 11 Meters. I was able to get close-up of him. I was positioned that some high vegetation was blocking my view on the bottom, left and right side of the GBH, so i couldn't move to change my view.

Here is a shot from where he flew back to where i was, all taken with my 7D and 400mm/5.6L.
