Photography Magic

This past Sunday afternoon, I headed out to a local park. Greenfield Lake was the destination. I was going on a Photography walk. I was in search of some nice shots of the local wildlife. This park is known specifically for the cypress trees and local alligators. I was a little more interested in the birds. They have blue and grey herons. These are large birds and quite impressive to see flying around. After a nice stroll around the path, I got to the back side of the park and got off the paved path and walked down into a creek and noticed a blue heron and a white heron sitting statuesque. Once I changed the setting on my Nikon D5000 to the action setting with no flash, I walked slowly in hopes of capturing a great photo. The birds did not disappoint, flying around and showing off a bit. With all the movement, I wasn't sure if I got even one decent photo. Cut to: Thursday evening after work, dinner, etc. I headed out to the "shdave" or david's shed as my step daughter and wife call it. I went to transfer all the photos from that walk and to my surprise I was gifted with an incredible photo. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have....I still can't believe it. As with most shoots I only got "the one" on this shoot, the rest of the flying birds were blurred, dark, and unremarkable.
