Heron Take Off and Landing

I think this is the same heron that I photographed last year along the Deschutes River. And it is one smart heron. It seems that no matter what side of the river I’m walking on, the heron is on the other side. So even with my 300mm lens, it was still a fair distance away.

  1. In my experience Herons can be hard to sneak up on. The best shots I’ve gotten were in the kayak. Apparently it appears less threatening when someone is floating by. Then again it could be that some are simply more habituated to people. Great shots nevertheless!

I'd love to hear from you
