Strange how this one hasn't received more praise as it is in my opinion a lovely image.I am able to identify with your comments as both Shir (shirgold) and I both tried to get a decent image of this beautiful bird a couple of weeks back....but failed miserably!Managed to get a nice one of a group perched on a tree but not a closeup.You have done well to get such good detail and clarity.A well balanced exposure so that he is distinct on the plain background.Well done and TFS.

This must be an excitement to capture this grey heron in flight. Good technique and impressive result. Congratulations.

Very nice catch. Beautifull, big bird in majestic pose. Very nice light, good colour of sky. Twigs are slightly disturbing, but not very much. I like it!

Greatly capturing this flying grey heron. Blue sky was nicely used for BG.
Sharp and neat.

voila ce qui se passe lorsque j'approche,il s'envole bien souvent avant même que je je l'ai vu!
un bon cliché bien net et detaillé.

Nicely timed capture. Good exposure and and POV. These guys are very hard to get a good capture of in our part of the world...very nervous. I'd probably crop a tad tighter on the top of the image...maybe a bit to the left as well. Tip for inflights with the D200...set the AF to "continuous" and go for grouped pattern AF sensor setup. This appears to be the way to get the D200 focus the fastest...your Sigma should be fast enough to keep up. Also, set the release in the custom menus to focus priority as opposed to shutter or FPS release.
