Blue Heron Launch

That’s launch not lunch πŸ˜‰ These images were taken in August of 2020 and I meant to post them in 2020 but as with many things that year…it didn’t happen as I had intended. So lets just call this better late than never.

We had been photographing the Blue Herons that hung out at this one particular retaining pond area when I spotted this fine feathered fellow (or female, who can tell) on top of one of the parking lot lights and it wasn’t upset by my inching closer and closer. It stood there basking in the sun for the longest until it took off.

That’s when this series of images happened. I was still getting used to animal eye auto focus in my camera as well as panning with a flying bird so I didn’t hit some of the images as sharply as I would’ve liked but I think they turned out well and tell the story of a heron leaving their observation/basking post.
