I took this picture couple of days ago whilst walking on a beach in Deep Cove, North Vancouver. I was out purposely looking for a close-up shot of something that caught my eye and then I spotted this lovely heron standing proud on the beach.

I used my macro lens to take this picture and was pleasantly surprised with the result.

Thank you for looking and please feel free to leave your thoughts….

Thank you Richsr, Lillian, Joline and everyone else for voting on this image.

Joline – Yes, you guessed it right……I had to get fairly close by creeping behind some huge rocks. I managed to get two similar shots and couple of it flying away. I will post the mid flight pic once I know how to remove something from the background.

If anyone has few tips on how to do this would be much appreciated.
