Chicken legs....... by sailingmusic

Chicken legs.......

There is a story with this shot. I went down to one of my favorite beaches early this morning after going to get groceries at 7:15 a.m. where I was the only shopper in the place. It was a lovely sunny still morning. The great blue heron was catching tiny fish by the shore. Then he saw a seagull land with a much bigger fish in his mouth and got interested in the gull's fish. The gull wouldn't give it up and I guess the heron didn't want a fight so it eventually flew away. Hence, this lift off shot. A photographer needs to be able to "wait for it." I just laughed when I saw the back of the heron's legs when it took off !!!!!! There was nobody at the beach so early this morning. I went back after lunch and the entire parking lot was full. There were beach goers, kayakers, and a ton of people sitting down around a picnic table (about 20) no masks anywhere to be seen !!!!!!! This has got to stop people. Put on your freaking masks !!!! Please, for all us old folks. 9/24/2020PP

Lovely capture and very funny narrative! I agree about the masks, I work in the NHS and remember what it was like in April/May everyone needs to do there bit to stop this happening again :(

I love your narrative! It was both amusing about the birds and so right on about the masking! I try to do my stuff early, too - best chance of avoiding people. Don't think I've been in a group larger than 2 (and that at a distance) other than my immediate family since March - and don't plan to be. Wearing a mask seems such a no-brainer to me. I can't for the life of me understand why there's such objection to it from some people.

Super shot and narrative to go with it. I agree too, regarding masks and distancing. Hoping things improve very soon.
