GREAT CAPTURE of the elusive Blue Heron Randy! Definite like from me! I've been trying to get a shot of him for awhile. Everytime I get close enough for a clear shot, he takes off or I get chased off by something bigger. pfft! Gunna redouble my efforts next year and see what I get... probably a blur of him flying away after I've fallen into the water ;) Cheers from Ontario, GG =)
Excellent capture, Randy! Seems you got this one while the Heron had its attention well trained on something. Well done.
GG - Thanks for the comments and the Like. As for the "blur of him flying away, I got that shot too. :)
Kevin - I think he was eying his escape route. I didn't see any fish in the area, as I think the salmon have moved through already. Thanks for visiting and for the comments.
Likelike.. very nice Randy! this heron in the light.. its a wonderful shot!
Thank you Els, for the comments and the L.
Thank you Alex.
Nice one Randy, they're pretty camera shy aren't they.
GG, never mind the heron, we want a picture of you falling in the water!
This one actually was more patient with me than most. Normally I get the photo GG described.
<<<< here it is =D see the churned water? that's where I fell twice, my leg + croc is still in there... LOL
...and here I was thinking you were just saying you were clumsy (at least the "croc" you're talking about is a shoe and not the real thing) :)
Hey Randy! It would be a safe bet to say that I've fallen in 99% of any water you see on my site =D It isn't pleasant but atleast I haven't broken anything in the past couple of years... Thankful for water! =)
Another excellent shot, Randy. Not sure which I like better ... this one is a nicer close-up, but the warmth of the other one is nice as well. Is it the same shot? Well done on both! Cheers, Patty
You have a good eye Patty. This is the same shot and was the first attempt at a finished product. I too thought it was lacking the warmth of the other one, so that's why it was redone.
Thanks for the compliments.
Perfect photo , nice view !

Thank you Imre. I'm still hoping to get a better shot, as the backlighting on this one didn't help me very much. I'm glad you like it though.
