Great Blue Heron - North Point State Park
- 1/200 sec
Great Blue Heron along the Marsh Trail at North Point State Park (Edgemere, MD). The first heron we saw was already flying away from me by the time I saw it. We were observing two bald eagles in the distance when we heard a sound coming from the beaver dam about 75 foot away. A heron started walking onto the beaver dam and was hanging out there. I took some photos and attempted to walk around through the woods to get closer to the heron. He had heard me coming and flew off. I got stuck in thorns and bruised my shin on a tree in my failed attempt.
I had to post-process this as it was over-exposed and too bright to show detail.
Lens - AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G VR II @ 200mm on Nikon D5500
