Friday

Ready for Take Off

Doesn't that Look Like Fun?!

A highlight of our vacation one summer (in North Carolina) was seeing all of the birds that I never get to see normally. It was fun to see this guy running through the mud getting ready to take off. I'm just sorry that it isn't a clearer picture. I was totally unprepared! Hope you all have a Wonderful Day!

A great feeling of movement and the effort the bird needs for flight!

What a great shot! It actually looks like a painting!! It made a song pop into my head too...♫ "I believe I can fly..." ♫ ^_^

I love Great Blue Herons! I usually get pics of them standing still, never got one in flight or preparing to fly.

Looks like he's running on water. I am so glad that there are herons living by the lake I walk around. I never get tired of seeing them.

No need to apologize for the sharpness, it's a beautiful photo and shows motion and I believe captures the moment wonderfully!

Great action! Love the tricolored heron. One of my favorites, especially since they were relatively uncommon when I was learning to bird up in MA.

Coy said...

Excellent capture of the tri-colored heron! Love how you captured the movement and the mud dripping off of its feet.

Wonderful. You caught him in full run! I'm glad it's mud on his feet and not oil.

Wow, just wow. What a treat to watch, never mind the fact that you caught such amazing detail.
