I had seen this Great Blue going over the right side of the dike. There are always small food critters on the waters edge.

He was not gone long though.

The bird came strolling out standing tall. I assume he had been watching me the whole time. Me, I had almost forgotten about him.

Above you can see he took a few steps and went right into the quick escape pose.

In milliseconds he went from standing to airborne.

He moved so fast I just followed with him and shot high speed until the buffer was filled. Above, I almost moved the camera faster than he was going.

He leaned a little in my direction after this, he needed to clear some reeds, and I lost him in the view finder. Cut him in half and no focus LOL.
