Grey Heron 2

By MikeRC
This is another of Blackpools Heron's.
I had been watching this guy for half an hour as he sat on the fence waiting for a fish to come along.
I saw the motorboat in the distance and as it drew closer I knew they were about to scare it,
realising that I was not about to get the shot I wanted...I'm not Greg Lassero... LoL.
I took what I could get and this was.
I hope you like it.

Thanks for your clicks and kind comments on my previopus shots,
when I look at some of the stunning pictures on EPZ I consider myself fortunate to get the attention I do.

many thanks....Mike

The Heron looks great but I know what you mean about not getting it the way you want. Smile Very frustrating!

It's still an excellent capture, the boat turns it into something more than just a straightforward wildlife shot

I do like it. I know what you mean when you talk about waiting for one of these guys to take flight. I have stood, framed and focused for 45 minutes while the heron imitates a tree, waiting for dinner to swim by. Then I give up and he spreads those magnificent wings when I'm not looking. :-(
Nice job here and perfect timing. -=\Walter
