So, walking along looking to my right for any movement. Nothing out in the marsh at all. I turned and started to pick up my pace.
This Great Blue was standing just to my left watching me walk by. I almost jumped.
In order to get a whole body shot I had to step backwards a few paces. I was using a 70 mm lens. Not long distance at all.
After a short while the bird dropped out over the river and was gone. These were probably the only decent images I caught all day…and a complete accident.
