American Bittern tries to grab blue Dragon Fly. Does he succeed?
Jul 10, 2014

This sequence with the K3 and 60-250 at 250mm.  ISO is 400, bias is usually +7/10 to +1 ev, shutter 1/1000, f/4.  Still had to push a little in post.

Hello hello?  Is that a tasty blue Dragon fly on that twig?

Hmmm.  Seems a bit out of my reach.

That is a fair bit up there.

Maybe I can stretch my neck a bit.

Easy does it.  A little bit more.  Patience.

Have to jump for it, chomp!

There he goes I missed.

Cheers.
