Should have moved slower and stayed further away.
not really HQ enough for the digital slo-mo to be that impressive and tracking this guy was hard – had to spin all the way around. Anyway, happy to see Ardea alba returning.
Maybe I saved a few frogs lives today!
The first great blue heron, Ardea herodias, I’ve ever seen at the field and stream visited this past December, 2016.
It never let me get close enough to get good footage, but its immense blue wings are clearly visible.
the footage from the first visit is even worse, but it was exciting to see this guy.
