Flight of the Great Blue Heron

Recommended Posts

I have been quite busy of late with workshop clients, but thought I would post a few from this past weekend.  The first birds that really start nesting this time of year in Florida are the Great Blue Herons.  The colors and additional feathers really make for great photography subjects.  These were taken with the Nikon D500 and Nikon 300 f/4 AF-S, non VR, lens, handheld.  I am off in 10 days to the Seattle area for three mornings of eagle photography down the Skagit River.  This time of year with the end of the salmon run hundreds of eagles gather for the feast.

I like the wings spread in the first.  Also the pairing in number 3 is inspiring.

Wonderful

 

The first one in particular is an absolute killer shot. Talk about timing! :)

#1 and #3 are wonderfully timed captures in beautiful light ... #2 not so ... for me it's out of balance but that's only me ...

 

very well done ... as usual Nancy :)


Never mind the words ... just hum along and keep on going...
