Great Blue In The Morning Sun

The Great Blue Heron was sitting on a rice field gate.  It was just a little past sunrise, light was nice, but still early.

In case he moved I took this first shot. Basic rule is get the first one, then do any setup. In this case it was to wait for more light.

I really thought he was going to stay. Which of course he didn’t.

The bird was kind enough to give the usual bent knee flight warning.

The light wasn’t what I wanted but just enough to get these, with a little morning glow.

Not what I had planned, still this is wildlife photography and very little goes as planned.

    1. Thank you. For those images just a little more would have been perfect, the feather details would be clear. But it’s a wild 5 foot bird in a marsh. They don’t really care that much.
