This morning the light was perfect at Byram. The warm morning light shone on the surface of the pond.
A Chinese Pond Heron perched on a dead tree at the middle of the pond. The reflection of the sun light gave a golden reflection on the subject.

1/1000s f/8.0 at 800.0mm ISO400
After photographing the Heron, I saw a Common Moorhen busy cleaning her feather after taking a dip into the pond. A photo lifer for me because I had not captured any photos of this species before. I dial up the ISO of my 7D to 640 so that I can use faster shutter speed to freeze the motion of the subject.

I was using a new CF with my 7D. The 16G SanDisk Extreme Pro was working flawlessly with 7D. The file transfer rate of the new card is really smooth even though I was shooting raw format with 8 fps rate. I shoot about 4 G of raw files images of the Common Moorhen and Pond Heron.
