PIC OF THE WEEK: 07/17/17 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2017 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Glen Allen, VA • Brook Rd.
Notes: This Great Blue Heron image is a prime example of seizing the moment. Nearly everything in nature photography happens or changes fast, really fast. That is actually one of the things I enjoy about it so much, I like a challenge. Sometimes the element of surprise can be headed off by anticipation or by reoccurring behaviors. In this instance, this heron’s favored perch at a local catchment pond. I promised myself, that if I saw this bird at that spot again, I would run home and get the camera. It worked out well, since this blue-gray beauty was still on its perch, sitting and preening when I returned. The light direction was perfect. I slowly inched in, a little bit at a time, watching the birds behavior. With no sign or disturbance, I crept in a bit more. After a little while I was standing at the distance I wanted to be and I aligned the reflection of the sky on the water behind the bird. I could step three or four feet to the left and bring a completely different green background into the frame, but I liked the blue the best.
