Great Blue Heron

I went to Elk Island National Park today and saw two special birds. First the great Blue Heron. It was fishing on the shoreline of Astotin Lake and I tried three times in different spots to get close. It was very overcast and somewhat dark, I had my ISO up to 400 and sometimes used manual mode sometimes AV and some times TV-wanted to make sure that i got some photos.On some of the photos the colours were all grey and all the pixilation was concetrated in the middle of the hologram. That is ironic because I am studying about light and grey cards. Some are cropped some are not. Enjoy!

  2. I see blue heron fairly often, but nonetheless I’m always thrilled to spot one. What a fantastic bird. Have you ever seen them nesting? A whole flock of them settle into the same tree, so it’s kind of like an apartment complex.

    • I have seen a “hookery” I think that that is the right name, a group of them on top of trees on a small island, it was long ago but exciting to se. You got any photos of this?

      • I do have a few (not great – I was stretching my telephoto’s limits). But if you’d like to check them out, I have a small album called Mostly herons that’s over at Opera.com. You can click on the photos to see a larger version.

  3. Great blue herons are one of my favorites to photograph. Their stature and beauty is astounding!
