I woke up at 5 am this morning (Andrea was not so Happy. LOL) and took advantage of a Canon 400 2.8 and a 2x teleconverter that fell in my lap ( thanks Adam). The plan was to go to the greenway by the house and photograph a blue heron that lives there.
Then i got to the greenway and saw a blue heron in the creek, and as soon as it saw me lift the camera it flew away. Typical. They are the shyest birds i have ever seen.
I then continued to walk the greenway looking for any song birds or water fowl, and found a few….
Then I saw the blue heron again, but i could only see it through the lens, it was too far away to see with the naked eye! I of course started walking towards it, and as soon as i did it started walking away from me,,, so i snapped a few frames…
As soon as the camera clicked he flew away, and i followed, got a little closer this time,,,
and he flew away again, this time i could not follow any more. then I walked the rest of the trail.
