Great Blue Heron
A Great Blue Heron takes flight early one morning from the beach in front of Casa del Sol near Xcalak, Mexico. Almost everyone morning there are flocks of birds fishing in the tide pools practically begging t be photographed and sense I have taken early retirement I often get the opportunity. Because this area is so sparsely populated and these animals are not hunted the have almost no fear of humans. If I move very slowly I can get real close. This morning I never was able to get the exact shot that I wanted but I did like this one.
