Jumping From The Nest, Great Blue Heron

Timing was right for this series. It didn’t hurt that the bird signals with a bent knee every time he takes off.

Most Herons will lean forward with a slight bend to their knee at take off. This male signals every time.

By watching where the bird was gathering nest material I could stand and (with luck) catch the signal and follow the flight. That’s the theory anyway.

The images below follow the full take off as he left to find branches.
