Just and another day

This Great Blue had set up camp in this small alcove of Harkness Memorial State Park Ct. I could count on it returning very day to the pole stand or this spot in shore. This photo was taken on Oct 29, 2021.
Thank you for stopping by.

Technical Details

Is this a composite: No
Canon R5, 100-500mm, f10, 700mm, 1/2000, ISO 8000. (I use 1/2000 shutter speed because I never know what bird will fly by at this park.) The shot is cropped by 45% andI used Deep Prime In DXO to reduce noise)


Excellent environmental view. Very crisp including background. Well composed.

Beautiful bird, well shot, in a busy but pleasing background. Love the greens, greys and brown.

Big thumbs up from me! I would not change a thing.

Beautiful image. No nits. This pose always reminds me of Auguste Rodin.

A wonderful crisp & clean capture Peter. It all works very well for me.

Thank you all for the kind words. It was fun photographing this big blue.
Ps I think DXO’s Deep Prime did a great job on the ISO of 8000.
