I went to the pond behind the house this morning to test my new D7000. Of course as I made ready to shoot the skittish Great Blue Heron that was feeding in the pond, other pedestrians came along and, like bulls in a china shop, scared the bird away. Sometimes I wish I could ban people from the pond until I finish shooting. The trials and tribulations of the nature photographer.......
This young Mallard was more obliging, and, I'm happy to say, it seems the camera works just fine.
D7000, Sigma 150-500 @ 500 mm.

Wonderful reflection Koos, and congratulations on your new D7000. I understand what you go through with the noisy "interlopers". It's one of the reasons I like to go out on my day off (Friday); much quieter and peaceful.
