Capturing the world with Photography, Painting and Drawing

The Herons flight , Galway Bay.

On a very enjoyable visit, I managed to Capture these Herons during a spring time visit to Galway Bay. At this time of year the Local Herons are hunting along the coast line for fish and getting ready to nest build in the spring.

To get these images I stood under some trees along side a beach and captured them as they flew above me.

  2. I’m actually here in Galway City for the next five months. I’ve two herons on the bay so far. I was shooting with 50mm lens, so I tried to get closer each time. Wasn’t worth it because the birds flew away quickly.
    Great shots!

    • Hello Jack πŸ™‚

      I hope you have a great time in Galway !!!!

      Yes they can move very quickly if they see or hear you !!!

      You could do with a 300mm lens as a minimum , other that that move very slowly !!!

      If you take you time you will get some images but it is hard to get yourself to do this , I think its the only way though!, at least with Herons they really do stay in the same spot a long time so take your time too !!!
