One of my first decent bird photos was a Tri-Colored Heron back in 2005 at Armond Bayou. Times have really changed in the past 9 years but I still enjoy taking photos of these birds. This one was taking off at Brazoria NWR.
Taken with Canon 1DX with Canon 500mm F4 IS II and 1.4X III teleconverter, handheld out the car window.
1/800 sec @ F9, ISO 1600, evaluative metering, +1 exposure compensation
