My Own Personal White Whale

My Own Personal White Whale

I've been chasing the great blue heron around Rockville Park's Upper Lake fairly often of late. The bird has been very elusive and skittish. Until now. I was able to approach very slowly and closely continuously shooting.

Lumix G 45-200mm lens. Check. Aperture: f/5.6. Check. ISO 500. Shutter speed... 1/1250s. Yes! At that zoom range, a shutter speed of 1/400s or faster is needed to get a sharp photo.

The Great Blue Heron. And it just stayed there until I walked away.
