Ok, my first one! And I'm giving you the bird!

May 21, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Hello and welcome!  I've never blogged before here or anywhere else for that matter, so this is all new to me.  I figure I might as well try it and see what happens.  I suppose this will be a good tool for me - to get out those thoughts of why I took a photograph, what inspired me, things I've learned and continue to learn, and just about "stuff" in general.  

My latest favorite picture I took was just yesterday.  I should have been working in the garden, but a large heron got my attention that feeds at the small lake near the garden.  I put down the garden hose, quietly walked back to the house and grabbed my camera.  I've been trying to get good, close shots of this bird for about a year now and he/she always wins with a getaway before I can get close enough to get a decent picture.  Well, yesterday I finally got a good image and my neighbors got a good show of me crouched down, almost crawling as close to the water's edge as I could get.  There were also a good handful of ducks watching me inch closer, who were well-behaved for a while, but then they eventually gave me away.

Here is the bird - more beautiful now that I can see the details of its eye, body structure and colorful feathers.  Simply an amazing bird, and I am so glad my patience and having a non-clumsy moment finally paid off.
