Great Blue Heron up close


Like I said last week, I’m now with my family in Florida staying at my Grandparents’ place. I gotta say, it’s great having family in great birding/hiking/shooting locations. It’s definitely tough to properly balance time spend with family and time spent with the camera, though. Florida is just incredible for birds, as so many of you may already know. I’ve only photographed one bird so far, but that’ll surely change today!

I found this Great Blue Heron near the beach around Fort Lauderdale as it was harassing a few fishermen. I was able to approach it from within just ten feet and take this up close portrait with a 70-200mm lens!
