King Of The River
Description: This Great Blue Heron was watching guard over the side stretch of the river on our tour of the Honey Island Swamp in Lousiana. Maybe he just didn't want to be aligator food and knew to be on the alert. In any event, he was a magnificant site. Shot was taken from the river boat with a Nikon D5000 at 300mm, ISO 1600, 1/250s, F/5.6.
Gear: Nikon D5000 at 300mm f4.5-5.6 lens (450mm effective), ISO 1600, 1/250s, F/5.6
