Seabeck’s Great Blue Herons

Unlike most photographers, I don’t go to Big Beef Creek to get great Bald Eagle Shots — though I probably spend more time trying to capture shots of them than I do trying to capture shots of Great Blue Herons. Still, my favorite shots from Big Beef Creek and Seabeck are the shots of the Great Blue Herons floating by below me,

gracefully landing with outspread wings,

or snatching fish from the water.

I’ve taken pictures of Great Blue Herons nearly fourteen years now, but my favorite shots are those taken at Seabeck. As it turns out, these three aren’t quite as good as ones I’ve taken there before.
