Hahahahaahahahaahha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since you've now mastered nuts, at least after they've finished growing , you're ready for herons! They actually stay as still as nuts!

And Lorax, once you've shot a heron standing still, set your shutter priority to the highest speed possible before the setting turns red and try herons in motion. It's more fun than nuts!

Herons do stand still. They stand still and preen themselves after eating all the fish in our ponds. Good pics Sage.

Well at least this was at a Bird Conservation area of a Wildlife Refuge, so it's okay.

I like herons. Nice shot.

Beautiful shine on those organic pecans!
