my blue heron

I shot these at the Bay Outlet Bridge earlier last week.  I don’t often see heron here, especially since there is usually a lot of people fishing and that tends to scare them off.  On this day, though, there were few people about since it was only 47° (F) and very windy.  I saw the bird in the shallows by the shore and just had enough time to fire off a few shots.  As soon as I moved to get a better vantage point, he (she?) flew away.

We drove out to Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge and found this blue heron very near the road.  Motorists are not allowed to leaves their vehicles at this point but you can stop and shoot from the window.  We stopped and watched it for a few minutes and then suddenly:

It didn’t take him (her) long to finish his lunch and be on his way.

I wished I had another 100 mm on my longest lens (300) and an extra stop, but it was a nice, sunny day for shooting and I was pretty happy with what I got.

Happy Earth Day!!!
