Great Blue Keeping Watch

One of those photographs you’re not sure how it will turn out, but afraid not to make the effort.

When this close there is no room for error since the bird is considering flight, even if they initiated the situation. It’s instinct.

This Heron knew I was right there, but walked out of the high reeds anyway.  My settings were not right for anything this close, meaning I had to make adjustments, slowly, then raise the camera.

This Heron was OK with all I did. Pointing a big lens can immediately frighten them.

Conclusion; this was another Heron born down the road in the local rookery.  He knows paparazzi .
