Sure. It's a Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM + Canon 600D.
For bugs and other small things I use a 70-300mm, but I don't really have a real macro.

I concur, the series is lovely. May I ask what kind of lens you use?

Thank you, Mona. It's too bad it won't allow to show the shot in its full size, but it gives you an idea.

You've probably noticed the blurred sanderling (in its gorgeous summer plummage) ahead of the egret.
