Great Blue Flight, Pretty Short

How often do you get to photograph a full take off, and landing, at the same time! Not something that happens a lot.

The Heron wanted to get the top spot in a tree. There was an Egret and Spoonbill already here. Rather than jump using the branches he took off and flew over them, gaining the high ground.

I was already focused on the bird when I noticed the ‘bent knee’ signal. I started shooting right away. I wasn’t using a fast camera here so I was doubly pleased to catch this.

The Heron was pretty pleased too. Took the best seat without any argument from the other birds.
