Earlier this weekend I grabbed this quick shot of a great blue heron as it flew across the marsh with upper back and side lighting hitting him.
I would have liked some light on the bird’s face, but I did like the way the late day sun brightened up the water.
Magnifico, è uno scatto stupendo!!
It’s interesting how it has its neck tucked in.
They egrets tend to fly more often with their necks fully stretched out but also will tuck. Not sure how they decide.
Beautiful flight shot, it really shows the speed by the water in the background.
Thanks, the look of the water was what I mainly liked.
Gorgeous shot, Phil. The sight of a Mr. GBH never fails to delight me. 🙂
Despite seeing them fairly often, I never get tired of watching and photographing these birds.
What a perspective to see this from ABOVE!
He obliged rather nicely by flying low just above the water.
I love the way the water reflects his beautiful colours! Such a favourite!
I always enjoy seeing these big guys especially in flight.
They are a beautiful bird – especially from above as already noted.
I never get tired of seeing these guys and it’s always nice when one cooperates by flying in low.
Stunning capture of it in flight.
Glad you liked seeing the GBH flight shot!
