Blue Heron

Been trying to get a good photo of one of these guys for a long time. They're difficult to get close to. Finally found a semi-cooperative fella last evening:

Excellent! I love the whole composition, the reflection and the lilypads in the water are just perfect. I have lots of "not quite right" images of these guys....

They're not only difficult to approach, they're difficult to capture in a pleasing environment. This one turned out well. If only, there would have been an egret on the other stump. smile Wouldn't that have been cool?

Nice shot Ken! I really like the way the reflection plays in the water.

Nice image Ken! I find the later in the year the easier they are to get a good shot. I'm trying to get a good image when the are in full mating colors, which I've been shut out of so far. I guess there is next year.
