We took a drive up to Birch Bay on Thursday evening - Don got off work early and it was the start of our three day weekend. On the way out of Birch Bay State Park I spotted the heron sitting in the tree. Don hadn't seen it so after I took the shot I turned to camera towards him so he could see it. And when I turned back to the heron - it had flown away. I won't do that again - I'll just continue shooting until the heron flies - THEN I'll show the pictures to Don.
This was taken in that area of the park where the lighting is magical - for some reason the colors are brighter and the lighting magnificent. This is shot is SOOC - I only wish I had gotten a few more.
