‘The Old Man’

When I typed “heron” into my website search engine I was reminded just how much I love photographing blue herons. They abound in this area, from marinas to bays, but one of my favorite heron photographs is from a sailboat trip to Chatterbox Falls, British Columbia in October 2005. Friend James Stover nicknamed this heron […]

Evening silhouette

There wasn’t much light, so I opted to convert this photo of a heron into a “watercolor.” Our walk on the Tommy Thompson Trail included sightings of bunnies, herons, geese and eagles. We also enjoyed the aroma of wild roses.

Uncooperative subject

Anyone who follows this website knows I love to photograph herons. As evidenced in this photo, some are more cooperative than others. This heron at March’s Point opted to move to a nearby pasture rather than have a “portrait.”

Heron silouette

During Thursday’s break in weather I stopped in at Ace of Hearts Rotary Park, a park in the making off of “H” Avenue in south Anacortes.

Pond chums

Apparently these two are friends from the ‘hood, because the mallard’s stealth approach from the rear left the heron totally unimpressed.

Perch and soar

If you look close you’ll see not only a seagull, but a blue heron perched on the rocks on a lazy Deception Pass morning. The birds’ playground was the swirling water just a few hundred yards east of the bridge.

Tuesday’s sunshine yielded opportunity to capture this image, a heron reflected in still waters near the Harbormaster’s office at Cap Sante Boat Haven.

October sun

I wasn’t the only one basking in the glory of morning sunshine on Tuesday. I shot a few frames of this blue heron just yards away from the front door to the Harbormaster’s Office at Cap Sante Boat Haven. What a great place to start your morning, no matter what the weather!

Great blue

Generally Great Blue Herons are quite spooky, which means you need a telephoto lens to get a decent “portrait.” This heron, however, hangs out in a high traffic area at a local marina, so he’s more approachable.
