A little rain didn’t stop either of us. The Heron went in the air (very little but it’s a star), and I got the shot.
This will build confidence and wing strength.
In this nest the bird might fly a short distance at first, over to the branches. Some young don’t have that option. The nearest place to land is further, and water (Alligators) in between.
Getting it right the first time is critical here.
