Great Blue Herons
Talking about birds, great blue herons are much more prominent and omnipresent than sandhill cranes locally. They can be sighted in singles very often on shallow water near river banks or shoals on the coast. They have a majestic look and each time I see them I wish I had a really long lens to shoot a closeup of them. Also because of lack of proper gears, I was rarely able to capture an image of them in flight. Nonetheless, I have taken quite many photos of them. Here are my latest:
By the way, I just placed an order for a Canon 400mm f5.6 L lens. Hopefully, with this long gun, I will be able to shoot better photos.
Have a nice weekend!
