heron displaying the wing manoevering techniques needed to get in to the nesting area to land. Awesome. I have so much admiration for these huge birds since watching these amazing sights lately.

Great shot. Looks like he is running in the air.

thanks so much, Mary in Kent, - they don't show up as well usually with the greenery behind, but this one turned out better. The camera doesn't know which to auto focus on, the greenery or the bird : )

Hi Rajeesh, thanks very much for the nice comments and your interest in the photos : ) It is easy for us to get to, as we live a few minutes drive from where these birds are nesting : ) So we just head off there some evenings, or call in enroute home if we've been someplace else, and see what's happening at the nesting site. It's been unusually cool here tho lately for this time of year, infact it's the coolest spring I ever recall. This is just south of Vancouver, British Columbia, in South Delta, near the BC Ferry Terminal. I do usually try to take the camera with me, as there's so much wildlife around here, bald eagles flying overhead each day. As I sit at my front window, taking pics of songbirds in the garden, I see the eagles way up in the sky flying past.

Wondserful shot. The heron looks like he's stepping out.

Hi Alandra, Nice wildlife snaps. Am wondering how are you managing to get these locations. Where was this ? And do you always have camera with you ;-) Rajesh

thanks Mary, the wings are pretty in this one. At first I thought his leg was sticking out front in this one, but it's a tree branch : )
