As I’ve said before, I love blue heron as a new birder & photographer! They are big. They are beautiful. They don’t usually move very fast. They are a dream for practicing bird photography with! In fact, earlier the same morning this photo was taken, I got what I thought would be fantastic shots. I was sure I would be sharing them with you. But the light was so dim that my flash opened. If I thought the flash would ruin the pics, I would have taken the time to turn it off. But I thought well, maybe it will brighten up the photos because it is pretty dark. Sadly, when I opened the photos on my computer the next day, poor Mr. Heron had bright red eyes and looked quite devilish! Uggggg.
Fortunately I didn’t pass this beauty by! Fortunately, no flash this time! Maybe he sensed my appreciation of his loveliness or he knew I would need more pictures than I thought? Maybe he knows how amazingly beautiful he is and enjoyed the admiration he was receiving? You may be thinking, “probably just a big bird standing still” and you are probably right!
