Part two of my morning excursion to Victoria Park!
As I was walking through the park I spotted a Great Blue Heron cautiously stalking by the lake in the shallow, murky green waters by the island shore. As I moved closer, the bird seemed somewhat anxious of my approach. I backed off and simply watched for a while. After some time the heron seemed less concerned with my presence and I was able to get a little bit closer for a few photos. The large bird stayed quite still, and so did I, moving only a little as I took the photos below. After a few shots I put down the camera and took a few moments to simply admire this beautiful creature.
A few people have asked me for some more technical information about my images, which I am generally forgetful to include, so here is some info on these shots:
Canon EF 80-200mm, 5.6, ISO 1600 (the light was pretty low still). I didn’t do much processing aside from tweaking the contrast and some noise reduction.
Hope you enjoy!
