zOOm from Paris, France

Terrific bird which looks highly concentrated... on the next fish I guess ! :-)
Great close-up. What kind of objective did you use ?

23 Sep 2008 11:21am

@zOOm: Au nom de Isabelle merci pour le compliment. Pour le renseignement à propos de l'objectif nous devons attendre sa reponse....

Wolfgang - [email protected]

La reponse d'Isabelle:
Le secret dans cette photo n'est pas l'objectif , car j'ai une caméra Canon S3 IS. Le héron était très proche , il était à 1m50 de moi .
Il est resté là un bon gros 10 minutes a faire mon modèle.

MaryB from Staffordshire, United Kingdom
