Chuck spotted this Great Blue Heron as we were passing
Godfrey Lake, just 5 minutes from home!!
The picture in my bird book looks different,
it doesn't have all the brown.
Getting this shot involved,
spinning the car around, (the hubs is getting pretty good at that)
jumping out and crossing some pretty rugged terrain.
But I did it and I am pretty happy with this picture.
I took a lot of photos, this was the only one worth sharing.
He flew off pretty quickly and all of my flight shots were blurry!!
All of my pictures are always SOOC, this is not cropped
as I liked the look of the marshy background!!
I always wonder about you guys,
are you jumping out of cars to get your shots,
or do the feathered friends you photograph come right to you??
Sharing today with all the great folks at
And a great big thank you to Springman for keeping us all together!
