Sure, a big lens for birding can help, but not this time. Shot this while on vacation in Florida at Morikami Japanese Garden. I had the height advantage on the heron and was behind a rock outcropping, this was shot from about from about one meter away (which was about as close as I was willing to reach out). He held very still while I was at close range, and flew into the wild blue yonder almost as soon as I vacated his immediate presence.
