Blue Heron

A Great Blue Heron surprised us during our walk through Clear Creek Park in Silverdale.

Liddy is most insistent in discharging her duties by taking me for my daily walk. We usually go up to Clear Creek Park, in Silverdale, WA, as it is quite near the office. Last week, as we came round a bend in the boardwalk, we came upon this magnificent Blue Heron. Only had my Lumia, and while it tried to capture the moment, well, it just wasn’t up to it.

Liddy and I take an almost daily walk through Clear Creek Park in Silverdale, WA. This Great Blue Heron seems to frequent the park at the same time we do.

That was Monday. Tuesday, my new Canon 7D Mark II arrived and I have been putting it to work. Our Blue Heron was out today, perched atop a snag looking somewhat ghoulish. I purposely made the shot through the leaves to frame my model, but now that I have a larger image to review I see I could have stood a little bit taller so as to put more space between the birds butt, and that leaf.

Oh well, the Heron will probably be around on more of our outings.
