It's nice when they will let you get close. I caught a Raven the other day who didn't fly away the moment I pointed my camera.

Hey, lady. Leave me alone. I'm just waiting for a bus here, okay?

Oh, I love this one, Lowell! He definitely didn't mind his photo being taken, this is for sure.

I wonder if they get self-conscious!

Great capture, TWO very accommodating subjects!

Strike when the iron is hot er....I guess in this case it's strike when the heron poses. It's a treat when wildlife cooperates with the photographer.

I have noticed that they will sometimes ignore people who sneak up on them.

And what a pose! Beautiful bird.

Small City Scenes said...

Yeah, they do that don't they. And 'poof' sometimes they fly away as soon as they see you. MB

That's wonderful! I wish I would come across more birds that were willing to pose this beautifully!

No heron has ever let me get that close! Hey, maybe I will visit Florida after all. :))

That's a tough shot to get. Maybe he's thinking "Yes, I am rather good looking! How's this profile?"
