August 22nd, 2014 – Avian Friday: Make it More Blue

Great Blue Herons are pretty common here in the Pacific Northwest. I sometimes have a tendency to take them for granted and not take advantage of capturing images of these beautiful birds. Here is one coming in for a landing, taken in nice light while photographing Bald Eagles earlier in the summer.
