OK, now this is the way it’s supposed to work. A recent article was a series of shots where the Heron did the opposite of the ‘normal’.

Above, the Heron bent his knees, leaned toward and glanced in the direction of flight.

An odd angle but he jumped where expected.

Above was the follow through. If there is no rush most of the time you can anticipate the flight path.

The other times… it’s exactly what you didn’t want them to do.

  1. Wow what an amazing capture. Truly spectacular, I never grow tired I seeing beautiful photographs of nature or seeing nature up close and personal. What a grande display of beauty in motion Ted. Have a blessed day. Love Joni

    1. πŸ˜€, thanks. Shots like these are my favorites. Many times I will skip other opportunities to get the in flight one. Which means they had better fly since I missed some good shots πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    2. I was delighted that somehow instead of seeing your post in reader I was on your blog page. Your work is amazing. 😘🌺

    3. My pleasure and you are right as my husband and I were able to zoom in on your magnificent photographs this morning and enjoyed looking at your work together. I think we were both floored by the close up of the Barred owl with his claws around the bull frog. Splendid really. I love birds and wildlife and you have a real gift. Blessings to you and your family. Love πŸ’• Joni

    4. Your kind words are greatly appreciated. At first we did this part time, almost exactly 4 years ago we sold everything and went to the Lowcountry full time. It’s a blessing. Thanks again.

    5. How wonderful to do what you love. What a blessing. I am happy for you and understanding why you are successful, your work is incredible. Hugs Joni
