Don't eat me by phalalcrocorax Don't eat me by phalalcrocorax
Yesterday, I tried to take my camera gear to go to Paris... and that wasn't a so bad idea.
Picture done in Paris, here exactly :D

For once the heron doesn't eat goldfishes only :D

Suite à ce que tu m'avais dit à Vincennes, je me suis finalement décidé à aller le toffer ce héron (et oui rien ne sert d'en parler sans aller le voir), il était bien la, mais je n'avais que mon 100 Macro sur moi (séance de repérage), j'y retourne asap avec le gros télé pour des portraits de toute beauté! (j'espère...)

... Un héron à Bercy ?!!! Fantastique :giggle:


Ah, ton 300mm me fait rêver ! Bravo pour la patience... :)

Salut
Désolé pour ma réponse tardive.
En effet, un héron à Bercy (enfin, pas un seul, il sont souvent 2 à trainer dans le coin). Et en plus, il n'y a pas que ça !!! La rousserole effarvatte est souvent notée comme nicheuse !!! La bergeronnette des ruisseaux est présente en quantité, le geai, l'épervier... toute une faune de qualité aux portes de nos villes !
Oui, ce 300 2.8 est une pure merveille !!! Je ne l'échangerai pour rien au monde ! Pour ce qui est de la patience, j'espère ne pas trop te décevoir, mais je n'ai passé que 2 heures à tout casser sur la zone ;-)

Hey ^^
2 heures ! Il faut déjà avoir la patience lol, mais pour obtenir une photo comme celle là, je suppose que ce n'est "rien" :)
Ça à l'air si simple dis comme ça... en tout cas, si jamais tu cherches une élève, je suis toute ouïe ! :laughing:

Hi
Thank you.
It is not very difficult (in fact, it is VERY easy). I only have to go to this garden and wait for this heron. He is always there ;-)
And I just have to wait to see him fishing. :D
I should go to this garden more often I think :woohoo:

:iconenko97:
enko97 Featured By Owner May 6, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
I think you should go more often too :lmao:

I've noticed that you have 300 and 600 mm lenses.. gorgeous! I'm patching myself with 40-150 kit lens :(
Reply
:iconphalalcrocorax:
phalalcrocorax Featured By Owner May 6, 2011
Ha ha ha... it is the same lens :D
The 600mm 5.6 is the 300 2.8 with the 2x extender.
Before, I worked with both 300 2.8 and 400 2.8... but with time, it is much better using only one lens.

But with only 150mm, you should go for some easy species... we all started with a small lens (me, it was with a 35-135), but that doesn't mean we couldn't take good pictures and to have fun observing the nature. I really think a good picture is mostly a good observation of the specie we want to make on picture ;-)

Well, I need more practice with living things.. usually when I get something alive in my viewfinder I panic because I have little of time.. or the second worst thing is when I do have enough of time but I can't get a clean focus.. I've manage to catch this one by pure luck, he came to me :laughing: [link]
