When a photographer posts an image, the viewer does not get to see the effort and vigilance it took to capture the photo.
This was one of the first photographs I took when I saw this Great Blue Heron, but of course I was not satisfied with this shot.
I quickly walked through the woods until I knew where he would be, then I slowed down and tried to be quiet. I knelt down to take a quick shot then moved quickly to try and get ahead of him.
There were a lot of trees and branches blocking my view, so I moved around the bend of the lake and waited for him to walk closer to me.
He walked out on the limb of a dead tree that was over the lake. He scratched and stood on the branch for a very long time. He did not mind my presence, so......
I waited until I got my shot!
