White-faced heron Egretta novaehollandiae on Pauatahanui Inlet as seen from the beautiful Camborne Walkway, near Paremata, Wellington, New Zealand.

It takes approximately 30 minutes to walk one way (about 2 kilometres) along the walkway, or about 60 minutes return.

The above image is a crop and its dimensions are 2792 pixels height x 1852 pixels width. Although this image has been substantially cropped, if printed at 150 pixels per inch, it would provide a print height of 18.6 inches and a print width of 12.3 inches.

The original full sized image is shown below and its dimensions are 6048 pixels x 4032 pixels. It was taken with the Sony A900 using the Sony 70-300G lens. The image was captured at 1/2500 second at F/8, ISO 400, and with a focal length of 300mm. To obtain a full-sized 6048 pixels x 4032 pixels image with the above field of view, the photographer would need to use a 650mm telephoto lens.

To obtain the best appreciation of the quality of the images on this site, they should be displayed at a relatively small size, because most images have been reduced in size to a maximum width of only 870 pixels. In addition, the images have been saved at a low quality setting.

During a subsequent visit to the Camborne Walkway, we captured an image of a white-faced heron in flight:
