Photos: Blue Heron Tai Chi Master

Rate: 5 Flag
My hope for 2012 ....that I will adapt to our world's ever growing sophistication and complexity as well as this Blue Heron.  
Whether it's to lead or follow.... being on the path is most important.  
This bird has been chosen himself to lead...I shall follow.
I recently  took a few moments to photograph my new Tai Chi master
during our group sunset salutation on a local beach.

The heron actually held these poses for about 2 minutes each and then switched to another. Why? I don't have a clue. Pictures shot at approx 300 ft with 300 mm nikor lens which wasn't really enough. I center cropped about 40% of the full image. hand held.

The sunset was dropping behind me, and was shot with-in a few minutes the heron. I had to make a few exposure adjustments , but not much else.

Great pictures! Florida does sunsets well.
absolutely gorgeous shots

I love these--and the way you have presented them. As a naturalist and artist I have no problem imagining birds doing yoga, meditation, tai chi or whatever ;-)
Magnificent. I adore birds and your photos. If you are not familiar with another wonderful bird photographer-blogger, I'd recommend you visit the blog of Robin Robinson.

Thank you for these gorgeous zen moments.
