Thank you, Kenneth. Intriguing, certainly. I'm not sure it's beautiful though,. Pretty ungainly birds.
Magnificent! I have stalked (in the photographic sense) Great Blue Herons for years and have never been able to capture any actions like this. You were definitely in the right place at the right time. ~R
Admirable..Thank you for the magic you share.Best regards..Rated..You bring nature here,Robin.
Stahi, yes, I was lucky. But, I was also prepared. I am a gardener. I was on a job, Weeding For Dollars, as I like to call it. I had my camera beside me. There is a tidal flat where I was working. Nothing was going on bird or beast wise, but I was ready in case. And TA DA! I too, have stalked this type of action for years and taken loads of pleasing Great Blue Heron shots, but nothing this interesting before. I'm delighted that someone has recognized the dedication it takes. Thank you.
A Simple, I just realized my response ther was actually intended for you! So read my "stahi" comment as your own, eh? I'm such a dope sometimes. And, Stahi, in fact, I want to thank you, too. You folks make me feel so wonderful when you read my work, look at my photos and comment about what they say to you. Thank you , thank you!
OMG Great.

Algis, thank you very much. They are so prehistoric looking and also make quite a squawk, too. I wish I had a video camera for moments like that one to capture the sound as well.
Stunning. I think I would have been knocked flat on the ground gasping for air had I seen this in real life. Glorious. I think I need to take a week off of work to look at all your photos.

The Good Daughter and dt dsf, thank you both for your high regard of my photos. I am a gardener, so many of the shots i take, this one included, have been taken where I'm working, Weeding For Dollars. So, my lumbar discs are pretty well shot, but my camera skills have gotten pretty good.
