I Could Not Step Back Fast Enough, Heron

I came on this Great Blue while walking on a back trail. Brush prevented any open shots so I ignored him and kept walking (BTW, this works some times. If too close just don’t look at them and they think you can’t see them…no really).

When I was very close he surprised me and jumped up and flew into the open.

He filled the long lens so I did the best I could. These are a little too close but at least you can see the details of this big bird.
