I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
Here are some recent flight shots of one of my all time favorite birds, the Great Blue Heron. Although it’s not an uncommon bird, I never grow tired of watching and photographing this wonderful heron!
Beautiful pictures ~ beautiful bird!
Thanks much for your kind comments!
That’s hot stuff. The last Picture ist really impressive.
I appreciate you looking! Thanks!
Nor do I get tired of seeing your wonderful shots of them!!
Thank you Molly for checking in and glad you liked the GBH pics!
These are great captures! I also love photographing the great blue. I just wish I could shoot them well in mid-flight too. I really like that first image, Phil. The way his wings were captured while fully extended really shows how huge this bird is.
Thanks a bunch Gracie! They are fun to photograph aren’t they?!
I’m happy you like these photos!
Gorgeous pictures !!!
I’m glad you enjoyed these GBH photos!
Majestic, absolutely divine!
Well thanks so much Dina! I appreciate the kind words!
Thanks so much for looking Robyn and glad you like the GBH!
I hope I can get such fantastic photos with my new camera, Phil. I have to learn how to use it first though. 🙂
I’m sure you will get terrific photos with your new camera and learning about it is a good portion of the fun right there! 😀
I certainly hope so. 🙂
There’s just something so magestic about seeing birds in flight like that. Great job capturing it. 🙂
Well I certainly appreciate you looking and I’m happy you really like the flight shots!
I sometimes get caught up just watching them in flight I forget to take the pictures. 😀
Who could blame you? They’re beautiful!

Incredible captures Phil. Perfectly sharp.
I really appreciate you looking and also your kind comments! Thanks!
Thank you Phil 🙂
You got it! 😀
Got it 🙂
I understand very well, even where I live there are many charming and each time I look at them. The photos are fantastic, I have never been able to make a shot while in flight, I get all bad
Pat, La ringrazio per le gentili parole e sono felice che ti piace le foto.
Wow! These are just superb Phil! A beautiful bird brilliantly captured! 🙂
Thanks a bunch for checking these out and for your very kind comments! 😀
The GBHs are pretty birds!
Not only are birds in flight beautiful because it’s a different view, but it’s also challenging enough to get a sense of satisfaction when you get it. And you did.
I appreciate your thoughtful comments and I’m glad you enjoyed seeing these flight shots of the GBH!
Great shots and a beautiful heron.
Thanks very much! I enjoy watching these fantastic birds.
The photos are fantastic !!! You are superb Phil!, Bye bye Orofiorentino
Thank you very much Giovanna!
Beautiful flight shots! I love it when they honk.
Thank you for looking and I’m glad you enjoyed seeing these GBH flights!
I really get a kick out them squawking as they fly around patrolling their area.
He looks like a missile when he flies… Just look at the 4th pic!!
He does look like a missile! He is a pretty fast flyer too! 😮
Excellent images, Phil.
I appreciate you looking Mike.
Just Beautiful Phil. I wish I have more time for birding photography. I started out with birding photography with my little Pentax point and shoot then I upgraded to my Canon 500D and continued that was in the beginning of my photography career. Now I hardly have time to do it. 😦
Aw jeez, sorry to hear you don’t have as much time as you would like to do bird photography, hope that situation improves for you.
Thanks a bunch though for checking out my GBH pics.
I love these guys, too. That last shot makes me think of Superman for some reason…. 😉
They are cool birds, glad you like ’em! Super Heron! Could be a new comic book I’m thinking. 😉
I love watching the herons too! Their unhurried flight and hearing the whoosh of those huge angel wings make many a morning for me
They are a fun bird to watch and it never fails to amaze me what these these birds will catch and eat.
Great moments you captured, fascinated me again. Thanks and Love, nia
Thank you very much Nia! I’m happy you liked these photos!
the last one is great!
Glad you like it! Thanks for checking these out!
Spectacular as always Phil!
Thanks a bunch Mitzi! 😀
Thanks! Glad you liked them!
Your photography skills are amazing Phil!!
I really appreciate the kind comments!! 🙂
Fabulous captures of a very interesting, beautiful bird. Robyn
Thanks very much Robyn! I’m really glad you enjoyed seeing the GBH pics! It’s always one of my favorite birds.
