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.
Great Blue Heron coming in for a tip toe landing in the marsh pond a few days ago…
Thanks very much appreciate it.
Made me smile… Walking on the surface or dancing… or just like plane,(there is a special name for this, but I can’t remember now 🙂 )…. Great shots… Thank you, love, nia
Thank you so much for your very kind words Nia and I’m happy you liked these photos!
You really had me watching the feet after the first couple of photos. Wonderful captures.
That’s what I kept looking at as well. Gotta love bird toes!
Thanks glad you enjoyed these GBH photos.
Delightfully awesome ! 🙂 !
Congrats , Phil !
I greatly appreciate your kind words utham, thanks!
Amazing capture, Phil…..bravo!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks a million! So happy you liked the GBH shots!
Your work is amazing. Do you live close to the pond where you shoot. I look for your e-mail every day to see what’s been going on at the pond. That would be a dream of mine to be able to shoot these wonderfull birds every day.
I live in the upstate of South Carolina and get out every week to the mountains to hike and take pictures. I have Dementia now but I have two good friends that take me hiking every week. I love the waterfalls and Nature photography.
Keep up the great work you are doing as it gives me a good reason to wake up every morning to see what you shot the day before.
I love your work and envy you for doing what you love to do and your dedication to get out there and see what’s going on at the pond.
Well I am truly humbles and honored by your vey kind comments Bob, and it’s really great to hear that you check the blog and enjoy the photos every day.
I live about 10 mins. from this pond and salt marsh area, it’s right on the beach, and I get over there every chance I have.
Wish you all the best and keep getting out in nature, it really can be wonderful.
Thanks much for checking these out Scott.
Great photos, Phil. You must have been busy clicking away. Almost like time lapse. Wish we were there.

Thanks a bunch for the kind words Becky and glad you liked these GBH photos!
Excellent catch, Phil!
Good to know you enjoyed these Gracie, thanks!
Sembra danzare sull’acqua. Che foto meravigliose!!!
Lui è un bravo ballerino! Grazie Pat!
That gliding and landing are sooo graceful! Thank you, Phil!
That’s yet another reason why I like these big birds so much, they rarely fail to entertain and amaze!
Thanks so much Amy!
They look just beautiful Phil!
Well I greatly appreciate that, thank you!
Wow incredible captures Phil.
I’m so happy you enjoyed these GBH photos Edith, thanks!
Great toe-drag. That guy would make a good NFL wide receiver. 🙂 Nice shots, Phil.
This guy has skills, he just barely managed to stay in bounds! 🙂 Thanks Steve.
Beautiful, like it’s dancing! Very nice series of shots.
He was doing a little dance across the water I believe. 🙂 Thanks so much.
Fabulous pics, Phil. He doesn’t just walk on water, he tap dances. 😀
This big guy is light on his feet for sure Sylvia, and with such style! Thanks for checking out the photos!
This gorgeous bird would do well at our Royal Ballet! Such beautiful pictures, Phil! I love the trail in the water and the reflections – the detail is amazing!
He really has the grace and balance doesn’t he Maggie. 🙂 Thanks very much!
These are really nice shots Phil! He hardly touches the water! Nice!
Thank you Sue, I’m happy to hear you liked these!
Perfect picture postcard! 🙂
Well I’m very glad you enjoyed these photos, thank you. 🙂
What a terrific sequence, with the heron feeling the surface of the water and using that to guide its landing. Thanks for so many great shots on this web site. I don’t comment on them all, but I certainly enjoy every one.
Well I’m very happy you enjoyed these photos Lee and that you like looing at the blog, I appreciate it.
She would make a good ballerina! 😀
Oh the balance, poise, and grace are all there for sure! 🙂
Marvelous sequence, Phil!
Thanks a million Deb, I appreciate it!
The swans in Swan Lake have nothing on this heron when it comes to grace and control. Why is there no Great Blue Heron ballet?
Oooo I would pay to see the GBH Ballet perform! 😀
Looks like he’s dancing on water!
I should have brought some portable speakers out there and added a nice soundtrack. 🙂
Awesome!!!! Just awesome.
Really glad you liked those Erv, thanks much!
The joys of burst mode and multiple frames per second. Or a very slow heron! Beautifully done, Phil.
I really appreciate you checking these out Andrew, thanks!
What a series 🙂 I was stuck to those toes. Great work 😀
Gotta love the bird toes! Thanks a bunch! 😀
Wow, these captures are awesome!! I’m so impressed how well you captured him! 🙂
I greatly appreciate your very kind words, thanks!
Fabulous series of photographs!
Very kind of you Adrian, thanks much!
So beautiful, excellent work Phil.
