On October 1, 2011 on our way home from Pier Village, after viewing the Migrating Monarchs, we decided to take the scenic, back roads home!!
As we drove through Asbury Park we spotted...
this Blue Heron, who loved to pose!!
I was walking and clicking fully confident that each shot would be my last.
As I got closer and closer, I was certain he would just fly off,
but he didn't.
I was shocked at just how close he let me get!!
I took 56 pictures and was about 10 feet away from him here.
He finally started moving, you gotta love those feet...
ruffled his feathers...
and took off!!
He was so pretty in flight...
for me, this was truly a magical moment!!
