I put my new tele-converter lens on my camera and walked to the bay in hopes of catching sight of my favorite avian friend, the Great Blue Heron. My feathered neighbor was not at his usual hunting spot and in spite of the fact that this heron stands at almost 4 feet, I did not spy him anywhere. Then just as I decided to head back home, I spotted him, with his long neck tucked, resting among the reeds and low bushes. Perhaps one day he will raise his long black head plumes for my camera and I will share, with all of you, his beauty. As you can see, plumes raised or not he is one stunning bird.
