These photographs were shot at strange, and really awkward angle.
The Heron was tucked in a thicket, hanging over marsh pond.
In order to shoot these I had to do much the same, hang over a marsh pond. Not something I would recommend with a heavy long lens.
I only grabbed a few quick shots, for obvious reasons.
When the Heron finally spotted me I quit. I considered that he could fly, I could fall.
There were other Herons nearby.
