Bird Pic Of The Week

Great Blue Heron

(Ardea herodias)

Where: Chincoteague, VA • Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge (NWR)

Notes: This four foot tall member of the heron family has a nearly six foot wing span and is a common sight along the canals at Chincoteague NWR. It was a treat to find this bird hunting for minnows in the low tide shallows of Tom's Cove early that morning. The warm light, clear sky and nonexistent breeze made conditions good for attempting some reflection shots. My position at the top of the roadside berm, with the rising sun to my back, allowed the maximum amount of sky to fill the background just beyond the subject. I especially like the focused attention of this large bird, as its foot trails the surface of the water, ready to make a lunge at a fish with its spear like beak. The ripples circling its progress, seems to add motion and interest to the image as well.
