Just a few days after we arrived in Sydney, Donna was out walking with little Isobel when she came to the door to catch my attention. Oh my goodness, it was this White-faced Heron. I was so excited but worried that the bird would be gone before I could get my camera and get out of the house to see it. Thankfully it didn’t flit away. This allowed me to even take a short video with my phone which I will share on my blog. But as soon as it started to move the phone was down and I was out taking amazing photos.
The Heron was so hyper focused on Skink Lizard hunting that it never even seems to noticed me. I do have a 100x400mm lens that gives me the ability to keep my distance. It is good not to get too close.
Find below the short 4 second video I took before I grabbed my big camera to go and take photos, some of which I am sharing below.
