Birds I Have Known
I am in the process of completing a new book which I hope will be much better than the last one. It sold okay but I was not as pleased with the layout as I would like to be with my work. I published the first one on Blurb and like the fact that you may download a phone sized version as an option.
This new book will feature the Great Blue Heron shown here as the cover image. It seems a bit grainy as photographers my age may notice. However it was a grab shot that just pleased me because I was there and know how difficult (lucky) the capture was! LOL...
My brother in law and I were drifting down a river over in Alabama when this Heron just springs into the air and flies virtually across the boat. I had been shooting some osprey close by so my camera was set properly. Two or three quick exposures and I had what ever there would be because he was gone. Surprising how fast he flew, but we had likely surprised him as much as he surprised us! At any rate I added a little contrast and this is what I got...
