The Moment

The boys had their first in a monthly Creek Biology class today. It was quite a treat when, as soon as we walked over to the creek, the teacher noticed this guy:

Great Blue Heron

I was very glad to have my camera with me. He stood still for a great swath of time, seemingly waiting for his prey to pass by.  But, then he made a few motions and plucked something from the water. 

I came home with a whole lotta frames full of this guy, but this stands out, not only because of his gesture, but, for the observant among us, there's a wee bit o' humor there too. Happy hunting.

  1. You know I had to find the humorous item in your photo. Is your bird poopin'? Great shot - with or without the string of poop. =)


Thanks for visiting my blog. I'd love to hear your comments on my photography. I see this as a learning tool, so constructive criticism is welcome.
