Quickie Trips: Colony Farm and Iona Beach Regional Park.

On June 30th, 2013...we went to Colony Farm and Iona Beach Regional Park today for a little bit of birding (in order to get the heck out of the house)...

The view from the parking lot

The view of the mountains from the parking lot with the 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII+TC-20EIII@400mm

The first of our Great Blue Heron sightings for today was at Colony Farm.

Because my daughter would not cooperate, we packed up over at Colony Farm and decided to go to Iona Beach Regional Park.

I think the Great Blue just about nearly wet itself when it saw the 600mm. I think "What the hell is THAT???!!!" was a front-runner in the contest of "What Would The Heron Say...when it saw the 600mm lens?" contest.

The Three Amigos...stood in the water pretty much there the whole time I was 'clicking shutter'.

One of the rare clear shots that I got of the GBH flying or landing. Pretty much had the ISO too low and couldn't get the shutterspeed up. OK...OK...I completely got too engrossed in what I was doing and forgot to set the ISO and shutterspeed up to 1200 ISO and 1/1250th of a second. My stupid mistake!

The B777 coming into land on Runway 26R @ YVR and the blurry herons in the foreground pretty much combine my love of wildlife photography and aviation photography - aviation being a hobby rather than the wildlife photography. Both are equally matched in my interest to both subjects.
