That is a wonderful shot. Digital is wonderful, we get to see motion stopped and marveled at.

Beautiful! The feathers in the wings are gorgeous! And I like that you caught it with it's tippy toe still on the stump (or whatever it's called).

HANNIBAL said...

Perfect timing! That last toe is still touching the wood! I love it!

Tina said...

What a stunning picture of movement!
With that last toe slightly touching the wooden perch..VERY nice, excellent timing! :)

Helen, that is a lovely photo of a Heron taking off! Take offs and landings, both for birds andairoplanes are the trickiest part of the operation. I notice he has not retracted his landing gear yet.
