  A Great Blue Heron in flight off the waters of Tillamook Bay, Oregon on July 23, 2015.
  I waited over 10 years to get a good image of this bird in flight, so I guess patience
  finally paid off.  Toting my 11 pound 400mm telephoto, with a 2X extender (making it
   800mm) and the 1Ds Mark III Canon camera (for a total weight of 13 lbs.), I hand
   carried this from behind some bushes, without a tripod, and spooked the bird into
  flight for this image (and the other 11 that were out of focus and/or had too much
   image motion.  This picture was taken at f/11, ISO 800, and 1/500 sec. exposure.
