Sneaky


Water fowl are fascinating to watch. They have to be really sneaky or they go hungry.

This is a great blue heron.

You caught the "one legged freeze" of the Blue Heron - on of their best tactics. Believe it or not, we have some of these up here in the mountains. We saw them frequently in Louisiana, and I thought they were strictly a coastal bird until we moved up here.

My compliments. You do great work.

How far do you live from where you shot this bird? It's an impressive photograph.

Stop on by Fear and Loathing - The Gonzo Papers when you get a chance and have a look at my shots. It's not a photography blog, but it could be a good fit for a link exchange.

Mutual benefit is what t he Villagers go...GONZO! Carnival is all about.

Lovely shot of the bird! I love how you've captured his shadow also.

I saw a green or blue heron this weekend - but I was about 150 yards away....and the shots I took just weren't clear enough to post. At least I'll have the shots and they will be great memories for me.
Hopefully I'll get a clear one to post at some point.
