When you round the curve of this walking trail there’s a puddle of water. During the wet months it’s more of a creek.
I startled a Great Blue Heron when I rounded the corner! He was standing tall near the water. Looking majestic before I disturbed his solitude.
He took to the sky as I cursed my decision to leave the zoom lens at home for a change.
What was I thinking? Well, I never use this short lens and I wondered what kind of shots I might make if I forced myself to try something new.
Severe crop here. Circle back tomorrow for part 2. And take good care!
