Grey heron in early morning light... Woodbridge Island

The Grey heron in flight was captured with the Canon EOS 700D and EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 IS USM lens over the Milnerton Lagoon, Woodbridge Island.

Quality of Light
For me, at the time, the quality of light was most important. A fast shutter speed came in handy as well. This was a JPG image straight out of camera with minimal cropping (if any).
