A Great Blue Heron Nest Builder bringing in material for their nest located in a rookery within the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge near Rockport, Texas. I was able to photograph these birds from a distance in the water by chartering a special boat. This is a great way to photograph these magnificent birds and to observe them in action.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 7D Mark II using a Canon EF 600mm f/4 IS Mark III that I rented from LensRentals. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/4, shutter speed at 1/2000th of a second and the ISO set at 400. I used a tripod for stability. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and completed in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
