Blue Heron

An early spring has brought the wading birds back to a marshy area I stop by on my way home from the office.

The limiting factor with this shot was my lens, a 28-200 zoom. In this case I needed the extra focal length of my 70-300 with image stabilization. I don’t usually take my entire bag of gear with me to work, just the camera and whatever lens is attached. Chalk that up as a lesson learned.

This Heron was accompanied by a gaggle of Canadian Geese, some red-winged blackbirds, a gigantic Great Egret, and a bunch of Common Grackles. All of which were quietly going about their day amid the busyness in and around the Mall in Waldorf.

Happy Saturday everyone.

  1. So, this was at Lake St Charles Towne Mall?
    No a bad array of birds in a sediment pond in a nearly urban setting.
