info

If only our herons cooperated with photographers just like white-faced herons  in Australia and New Zealand, how many beautiful images could be taken. I happened to meet white-faced herons a few times in Australia and several times in New Zealand. They are not as big as our grey heron or great egret,  their  weight is about a half kilo with a height of about 70 centimeters , but they  can be easily seen on the seashore feeding at low tide or on the banks of rivers. Approaching quietly you can reduce the distance so that with the camera equipped with  600 lens there is little space left in the frame. Of course it takes time to reduce the distance (15 to 30 minutes adjusting the tripod step by step, remaining down on my knees, hunched)  but that  is nothing in comparison with the situation when  building lookouts and  waiting many hours is necessary. Of course, each method has its advantages and disadvantages. For lack of time  such "walking" shooting gives you a chance to take satisfactory images. It does not give a chance to watch birds and their natural behavior, not to mention recording their mating habits. Heron always  were watching me from the corner of its eye without interrupting feeding. Taking the opportunity of such a shooting I also managed to take photos of oystercatchers, cormorants and gulls, of course. Several attempts gave a chance to create the presented images of this beautiful representative of pelecaniformes – welcome.
