This encounter with the Great Blue Heron fishing who was in an area I don't normally see him. I was off to work after lunch and stopped the trip. This portion of the lake is about twice as close as it normally fishes therefore better photos. He gave me that look when I got out of the car of what now. It is a beautiful bird in great shape. It fishes this lake quite often and so I get to see it weekly.
It got mad at me when I got back in the car to continue to work and flew partially across the lake to a place near my car. I got back out and walked toward him.
He started to move then took wing. This is my best flying picture ever. Just take a look at that wingspan. I like the reflection in the water as it approached the other shore.
So that is my encounter which was a ball for me. I hope you enjoyed it.
