The photographs here were shot through some woodlands. Pretty much an open spot that was there, where the bird landed, by luck.
I noticed the Heron heading in the same direction I was going but didn’t think I would get any type of shot. The landing spot is on the side of a narrow marsh canal. I was in the woods.
Things work out some times. This was an open area for me, between trees on either side. A few feet either way and I would not have even lift the camera.
Heron had been chasing each other up and down the canal so I was not surprised. The last few days they have been protecting territory more than usual.
While I only caught a few shots the landing was a nice easy one with plenty of open wings.
