Whenever you see a Blue Heron with it’s neck curled It’s resting and or sleeping. This one didn’t seem to mind me getting close enough to take this shot. I found the bird and the setting beautiful!
Walter posed for me tonight.
I wanted to line up those gorgeous clouds in the background with the Heron in the foreground but this Heron was wise to me!
I had to beach the boat and walk in the shallows. I am constantly taking shots as I walk. I call them “Safety” shots. If the animal takes off before I can get to that “special spot” at least I have something. Ten percent of something is better than one hundred percent of nothing.
So this Heron took off before I could reach that spot unfortunately!
I found Walter kicking back. You know a Heron is relaxed If the neck is coiled. When it’s stands straight up it’s beginning to feel worried.
