I spent quite a few days watching and studying this heron catch fish on the shoreline of the Lake Of Menteith. I wanted to capture an image that used a very low shutter speed to create a soft blurred background whilst maintaining a little sharpness in the heron but without freezing motion completely. This is the result of using a 400mm lens, handheld at 1/40th at f4!
