GBH Take Off

Day 125/365

Was down to my own outdoor studio (the cemetry).....one of my favorite places to shoot......and found this Great Blue Heron who immediately began to fly away as soon as I approached. My shutter speed was not fast enough to catch his wing movement, but I was happy to get the eye sharp, which is the most important thing to have sharp in an image like this. I also personally like the blurred wings, as I think it shows motion.

  1. Positively prehistoric-looking bird ~ classic take-off with beautiful reflection. Do I detect some hints of fall colors in the foliage? I'm sure he came right back to his favorite fishing grounds when you left! Nice capture, Carol ~

    1. Thank you Cynthia. Now that you mention it, I'm not sure if those are early Fall colors or not. I'll have to go back and check it out!
