Here comes the sun

My favourite bird, at my favourite time of day: great blue heron, in the golden hour.

Pertinent technical details or techniques to help others learn:

Nikon D500. Sigma 100-300 with 1-4x multiplier @ 340mm. Manual exposure: f/8, 1/1500 sec, 1400 ISO. Hand-held from kayak.

Very nice colors, crop, light. The water access floats many possibilities. TY

Thanks, Steven. We bought kayaks for general recreational purposes, a couple of years ago, but they have provided many great photographic opportunities I would never have had otherwise, and which I did not expct. Michael
