A few photographs, shot wide, of a Great Blue flying into a swamp. (Best viewed full screen)

Getting wide images, showing the surrounding environment, gives some perspective of where photographs like these are taken. A better feeling for the location.

The trick for me is not to shoot too wide, the Heron would be a dot. I almost did that here.

In this location shooting wide means you also will have branches or Spanish Moss in front of you as you follow the flight.

At least I got three useful photographs. All things considered the Heron came out fairly good.

  1. Great shots, carrying such a big stick. I still have not seen any hersons around here. The Great White Pelican are starting to show up. I went down to see them the other day. They are so white and clean looking right now, after making it up here from your area. but after a few weeks of hanging out on the Mississippi River they are not going to be so white. πŸ™‚

    1. Yes, Iowa has not done that yet, not to many cases here. People have been staying in anyway, I go down to the river a couple times just to get fresh air. I travel by myself and no other people around.
