Focus on the Eye

Standard advice when shooting wildlife: focus on the eye. ┬áNot always possible, such as when the subject is moving, and the photographer is panning. On this day in the Florida Everglades, I had enough time to focus on the great blue heron’s eye while hand holding my Nikon D800 with a 200mm lens.
