GREAT BLUE HERON – April 30, 2015

Good Morning! Glad you could join me for a walk today, the last day of April, 2015. My-oh-my where do the days and months go?

I actually walked yesterday but only took two pictures and neither one was “blog-worthy”. That’s one of the few times I’ve been skunked.

This morning looked like it was going to be a repeat but then I got lucky down on the wharf.

As I was approaching the Coupeville Wharf I thought these flowers and what little sunrise we had would make a nice photo and it did except it’s a tad out of focus. I should have been carrying my tripod.

I spotted a nice big Blue Heron from the dock and chased it around trying to get a nice photo. Here’s the one I liked best. You usually don’t see that much blue on them, generally they are more gray.

Shortly after that photo it took flight and I tried to capture it with its wings out. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough light for a good fast photo but I kind of like how it turned out. It’s sort looks like a ghost bird with a ghost seagull chasing it. What looks like a second seagull below is actually a reflection in the water. My attempt at being artsy 🙂

I hope you enjoyed that and will join me again tomorrow. As always, thanks for walking with me.
