I was stalking the heron for about an hour yesterday and watched it fly from rock to rock. I was able to get a few shots of it flying. Even though it is a big bird and its flying is not as fast as smaller birds, I still have a very difficult time getting good shots of it in flight.

Thank you, Nia. A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, too.
You got some superb photos. 😀
Thank you, Cee. Have a wonderful Christmas holiday.
They look pretty good.
I would advise going to a higher ISO; keep trying higher settings until you’re happy with the results. You’ll get some noise, but these days the noise reduction abilities of post-processors are pretty good. Plus, most people don’t look at photos at the pixel level and they won’t notice the noise. You’re probably already doing continuous shooting, but if not, that also helps. Finally, zoom out a bit so you don’t lose the bird in flight and then plan on cropping.
Thanks for the info. I’ve been trying to keep the ISO lower to keep out the noise but that is a great suggestion. I will give it a try. I do use continuous shooting and will zoom out a bit so I don’t miss the bird. Thanks again.
They are magnificent birds in flight.
These are wonderful, love the flowing water behind them too!
