Such great details!! I got a funny shot of one yesterday ruffling up its feathers, but I didn't have that awesome lens of yours so it's not nearly as close. :)

I've only yearned for a photo of a Blue Heron in flight! What a great shot you got here! Aren't they just beautiful?!

Wow, that is some wing span. Terrific capture, Myrna.

@Weezilou Here is a hint, find one, in a marsh, etc. Set your camera so you can it moving even though it isn't, stomp your feet a couple times and voila, it will probably take off for you and you have your camera trained right on him.

Great catch.

Terrific catch. You obviously hang out in better places to catch wildlife than I. All I seem to have around me are bugs and I'm getting pretty tired of them.

@ptowncook I have noticed some of the places i go, the green heads are biting more. Maybe your area doesn't have as many marshy places as this side of the Cape?

The back of my house is a bog. Or a swamp depending on you pov. Then there's Pilgrim's Lake and the bay across the street. I probably spend too much time inside!

Superb capture,wonderful clarity!!FAV!!
July 10th, 2012  
Beautiful bird! ... They don't seem to be very easy to photograph either ... they don't like holding still. Fabulous.

Perfect shot, Myrna! Love its wingspan and the intensity in its eyes!
