BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

EYE ON THE PRIZE (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

24 Comments

Two summers ago we had several Great Blue Herons at the reserve which was not the case last summer. In 2016 the water level was lower than this past year which made for easier fishing. The first heron is flying away with a catfish, the second is displaying a rather graceful takeoff. These herons are a pleasure to watch and photograph in flight or as as they stalk, fish, or preen, usually ignoring the photographer.

  3. oooh, both are splendid, Belinda. I love the first one for the detail and the catch, and how great to even see the carp’s barbels. The second one is unique because the capture of a GBH taking off amidst water lilies is exciting.

  5. Wonderful shots! 🙂 The Heron around us are very elusive and tough to be around even at a great distance; too many crass hunters in our rural area!
