Heron Hunt

This week I went on a heron hunt. I’ve been watching them fish on the property all summer long and have actually been trying to get a shot of them fishing for frogs. I still haven’t gotten a decent shot of that yet, but here are some of the shots I did get.

I will freely admit that some of these shots do not represent my best work, but I was playing around with going fully manual and relying less on my automatic features. I still have some work to do on those skills, but the birds are so beautiful and graceful, I think they make up for some of my photographic shortcomings.

As I was shooting him on one of the dead trees, I noticed a cool, twisty spider web. So here’s my artsy fartsy view of that.
