"To shoot a "GREY HERON" bring your 500mm lens" Top 5 Page for this destination Isle of Skye Packing List Tip by globetrott

Isle of Skye What to Pack: 6 reviews and 4 photos


Photo Equipment: Grey Herons are my favorite birds to shoot by tele-lens as they are extremely shy and will fly away, as soon as you get closer than maybe 60 meters...
They absolutely do not care, as long you sit in the car, but as soon as you turn off the engine, or open a window, theywill fly away immediately.
But I have my APO 5,6/400mm lens ready and I was lucky with this Grey Heron in a place, where I could hide behind a bush and the heavy trafic made sure the bird would not hear me

Miscellaneous: There are plenty of more pics in the travelogues !

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
