100 individual photos converted to stacked photo with Helicon Focus 7 software. Additional PP done with PSE 7, ON1, NX2, MS PHOTOS,

love your shot, makes me want to do some stacking again. I like the control available with helicon focus and remote. Checked on the latest version license and you can still get a life time license.
helicon focus does a fine job

I'am nearing 66 and have a bad back. I went through sigma and tamron lenses on the way to the
nikon 200-500 with 1.4 TC option. I have a D750 and use a monopod with gimbal head (heavy gimbal head).
My avatar was shot on first outing with this setup and cropped a great amount. In my price range this was the best bang for buck. Fast focus at 1100 to 1250 ss catches the BIF. The faster the glass the heavier the lens and price jumps. The sigma i owned was a 2.8 way too heavy. The tamron a g1 was lighter than the sigma but compared to the nikon 200-500 would not focus as fast the way i shoot. (AFC 9pt single point matrix)

For everyday walkaround my old nikon 70-300 afs vr. still has a price around 500 and does a pretty good job.

if i got the link right this was that first outting

The first photo is my pick of the two. I like how you captured the nearly mirror-like reflection of the bird as well as the surrounding area. It literally looks like the bird is standing on the water.

This little salt pond has a tidal influence but is calm water for the most part. If i could get my old bones moving quicker in the am I would find many more birds.

Just a couple snapshots midday. The BIF was a quick draw shot as the heron caught me by surprise. Corrected motion blur best i could.

Merry Xmas to all.
tricolor heron?

I am thinking of buying this lens, has anyone got any experience with this lens, and is it any good.
I don't have a good zoom lens which I sometimes find I need.

I have had one for a good many years. It is my go to lens for hand held walk around wildlife shots. I use it on my d7200 and d750 cameras. Not too heavy.

Grandfather mountain (mile high view) and Linville Falls are within range of the Boon NC. You could spend days trying to see all the views and short hike hidden gems in this area.

Good stuff! Not sure about the grain effect on the bird though.

The bird was in deep shadow. Not a good shot
