This is one of those times that only other photographers who shoot wildlife will truly understand the significance of. If you do a google search for Blue Heron photographs you will be hard pressed to find one from this angle. I was beyond delighted as it was unfolding and it took everything in me to sit perfectly still as this beautiful, majestic bird with that incredible wing span flew straight to me.. head on. He didn't know I was there until he was almost on top of me. Those meditation practices are coming in handy as much in my physical life as they are in my spiritual life! ;-) Wow... what a thrill!
I've captured quite a few shots of them lately, but because they're so skittish and it's really unusual to get one to come straight at you like that at eye level, it's probably my new favorite. Here are a few more though. I enjoy photographing them quite a bit.
