I finally (almost) caught a heron landing…

I am not a good photographer and never will be. I have too much damage done to my system over the years by wars, fighting and illnesses. I shake too bad and reflexes are shot, but that never stops me from trying and I caught these images that came out pretty clear…

I messed up the shot flying in and messed up the shot between landing and settled, but these two came out good. I am going to use my tripod this next week and get some long distance shots with steadiness…

That bird is at least 6 feet across in wingspan and they are simply beautiful as they fly and play, now they also can be downright noisy and make the most horrible screams that I have ever heard, when pissed off or upset or scared…

Here is an image below, that I caught of a heron getting ready to land later. The camera died (battery) after this shot and I did not get the rest of his landing…

Herons are so beautiful and plentiful in these lakes. This has not been true heretofore, until the last few years. Before that we never had herons anywhere around the lakes, therefore I am pleased that we have them now and hope that we keep them forever…

    Good pictures. Looks like they turned out well.

    Near where I live there is a swamp, with sandhill cranes that fly up out of there now and then. They soar overhead, making that drawn out croaking squawk. They look like pteradactyls as they pass overhead.

    I love cranes also! These birds are so huge and they do look like a pterodactyl at times..

    I Love birds…wish I had wings. Climate change is here, Kyle, and your herons are adapting and now Kyle’s lake is their new swimmin’ hole.

    Except my lake disappears, as in drained, soon to frozen weather and the herons fly away. I look forward to next year then and see them come back…
