The young Blue Herons are not sure what to do around people. This one stood completely still, on a cloudy day. A perfect background for high key photographs.
Because they were raised in a rookery close to a trail they had photographers visiting all the time. Most grew up looking down, over the water, watching big ‘one eyed’ camera people.
They will not let you too close, unless by accident, but being aware of people might help them as they travel.
