Great Blue Heron Soaring

Overcast skies doesn't keep birds from soaring high in the sky. I was prepared for this Great Blue Heron coming at me. I was following this bird through my lens when it was resting on the shoreline. But when it took off it was action time! It was approaching me closer and closer by the minute. A few quick shots here and there before disappearing over the trees. Location at Manasquan Reservoir, Howell, New Jersey. Photo taken on May 10, 2018.

Camera: Nikon D7'100
Lens: Tamron Di II VC HLD Lens for Nikon 18-400mm at 400mm
Camera settings: Manual, 1/400sec, F6.3, ISO 800. Not cropped

Another bit of a test. Underexposed and brought up by a full stop on the MK IV. Don't think I could do that with the 7d mkII.

Little bird and so much green 
A beautiful moment captured I remember vividly in 2018. I point my lens at this particular spot for a reason. It's a resting spot for all bird species. I didn't have to wait long for any activity. Then all of a sudden this juvenile house sparrow had it's moment to shine. It stayed for a while before flying off to nearby tree. I love the soft and dark tones of green in the background. The light was hitting perfectly throughout the surroundings. Taking this photograph under overcast conditions with little breaks of sunlight made this moment of picture taking a success. Location right where the beauty and wildlife happens in my backyard. Central, New Jersey. This photo was taken on August 1, 2018.

Camera: Nikon D7'100 
Tripod: Vanguard
Lens: Sigma Contemporary 150-600mm at 600mm
Camera settings: Manual, 1/500sec, F6.3, ISO 800, not cropped

(Post 3 of 3) After the bobcat walked under the guard rail directly below me it crossed the road and walked into the woods. I moved to a spot slightly ahead of the direction in which it was moving and crouched down behind some vegetation. It slowly passed in front of my position and allowed for me to get one last shot off before making its way off into thicker brush disappearing into the rapidly darkening forest. This experience was truly incredible and was one of the best moments of my life. It was a really special moment for me. I hope this species thrives in New Jersey and I have more opportunities to appreciate them in their natural habitat. I hope this bobcat has a long happy life.
•
In New Jersey bobcats are an endangered species. They are extremely shy animals that are rarely seen by humans. They were once widespread and common In New Jersey, probably occurring in all counties. European settlement was devastating to the bobcat population due to relentless hunting. Rapid development, and massive deforestation has also led to their decline. As forests were cleared for lumber, fuel, and agricultural use bobcat habitat became fragmented and populations were isolated and plummeted. •
The Nature Conservancy is currently In the process of preserving land in Northwestern New Jersey in order to help the bobcat population in the state. The population is currently estimated to be about 250-280 individuals in the state. The “Bobcat Alley” will help the wild cats move unimpeded across northwestern New Jersey. Once completed, around 400,000 acres of protected habitat will be linked between New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.

I wasn't expecting rain on this outing but it was really light and added a little something to the photos. There were a few Eastern Phoebes working this open field and even when they were far away like this I was able to get a mostly smooth background thanks to the distance the treeline was from the bird. It was early in autumn and some colors were just beginning to show which I thought turned out nice back there.
