Taken in Bushy park. I put the moon in as I felt the picture was lacking something. Canon 40D and Canon 70-200 f4 L IS.

    Beautiful pose and detail, was wondering about the clarity of the moon, your description satisfied my curiousity :-)

  • Thanks for your comments Macky. I took the photo of the heron from about 20ft at less than 200mm. the moon I took about 2 weeks later I set the lens at about the same focal length and focused at about the 20 ft and set the lens on manual because no way at that short distance were you going to get both in focus and thought it would look more realistic with a blurred moon.
