I had my Canon 100mm Macro and Canon 100-400mm lenses with me on a recent trip to Magnolia Cemetery. A Green Heron hanging out on a dead branch gave me an opportunity to use both.
I was trying to frame the entire shot with the branch but other hanging vegetation nixed that idea. These images are all cropped square for the most interesting compositions.
Puffy white clouds added a nice element.
I was able to edit this final image taken with the 100-400mm lens in Lightroom to lighten the limb and the bird a bit. Interestingly, the same edit on the images with the 100mm lens had a very unnatural looking result.
