Black-Crowned Night-Heron

This is another image made by hand-holding the Nikon 1 J5 with the 30 – 110 mm lens at max. focal length.  I have been getting better at holding the camera steady but I really should try using a monopod.  So far, in good light, the fast shutter speeds with the silent electronic shutter have been most helpful.  The main issue is holding the camera steady to get and keep the focus point on where I want the focus to be.  The small sensor and large apertures also help with the greater depth-of-field.
