We were setup on the Wildlife Drive at this popular spot at J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. It is a fairly wide open area with sandbars where birds tend to land and flock to. Plus a lot of activity in the water around it. A lot of people also fish here so it gets very crowded for photographers! Sometimes there are up to 40 or more people here photographing the birds. This Great Blue almost looks like it is waving to us. I also liked the Cormorant swimming by in the background. Image taken @800mm.
Is it signalling, “You have to keep THIS far apart!” ? 🙂
Wow Eliza! Did not think of that! Thanks so much!! Stay Safe!!
My pleasure. 🙂
Nice shot, Reed. The cormorant is oof enough that I thought maybe Nessie was visiting.
Thanks Steve! Did not think of that! Would make it more interesting!😊
I’d say you got a twofer there😊. Very nice.
Thanks Belinda! Did not think of that!
Hi, Mr. GBH, waving back at ya! 😉 Nice shot, Reed!
Thanks Donna! They are fun to watch and photograph!
Patient and practiced, now until the shell breaks open, it will open like a flower to breathe and unfold the feathers like petals, Great Blue Heron emerging small and imperfect to become, the only real and perfect mirror of the self.
