Zoom In, Zoom Out and Wild Bird Wednesday







Today I am sharing some photo's I took this past Saturday of a Blue Heron at Mill Creek near the Community College Campus here in Walla Walla.
Coleen and I went for a little drive to see what we could find to photograph and spotted it.


I'll be sharing with Helena's Zoom In Zoom Out Meme and Stewart's - Wild Bird Wednesday.
 
 
Click to enlarge photos.
 
 
First the Zoom Out shot as we first saw the Heron:
 
 
It then decided to fly and as luck would have it, it flew straight towards me.  So I just kept snapping away.  Zooming in....
 
Ready or not here I come.
 
 
Start to engage landing gear...
 
 
Landing gear down....
 
 
Touch down. - I love how ruffled the feathers are on it's chest in this shot.
 
 
Let's pose for a the camera.
 
And.....
 
 
 
We're off again!

  4. Terrific sequence of shots! I love the Blue Herons; however, they're very hard to get close enough to for decent shots around here.

  20. Wow! Good job, Ida! Those pics are fabulous. I've only seen photos of them standing, but not flying, so the color of his dark wings is a surprise. That water looks so BRRRR! cold to me. How do the birds stand it?
