great blue heron

by BlueSolitaire in Nature Photography

These guys are so easily spooked. It's really hard to get a good capture of one without a zoom lens. This one landed right in front of me. I was in the shadows but the camera clicking alarmed him. Got a few good shots before he slowly flew away. Darn they're cool birds. :heart
This was websized. LMK if anyone thinks I should put up a larger file. Though my usual files are over 4 MB easily...
