Bird Pic Of The Week

Great Blue Heron

(Ardea herodias)

Where: Newport News, VA • Museum Drive

Notes: I captured this image of this "Great Blue" on its way back to its favorite perch. Another Heron had approached too closely to its staked out fishing territory and it quickly took off after the intruder. I figured it would return to its original spot, so I readied my camera settings for a flight shot. Luckily, it banked slightly into the light breeze as it passed, which revealed the water's reflection under its wings. The mid-day overhead sun is not always desirable for photography, because of its harshness, but is this case it provided enough under-shadow and contrast that a little of the water's reflection shows up. I also like the full spread of its six foot wingspan as its wing tips feel the air for movement.
