09/16/09 - OK, finally, the Great Blue Heron picture that I took at the wetlands area of the Durham Museum of Life and Science last Saturday. I watched this guy and the Green Heron for about 20 minutes and took about 200 photos. It was quite a thrill. The museum has a water table that the kids can play in right behind the area where I was shooting from, so while they were soaking themselves I was happily snapping away:-) I ended up posting the one that I took when the clouds went in for a minute...less glare. This guy was putting on quite a show stalking fish of which I saw him successfully nab several. Usually I see him when we go ot the museum, but he was much closer on our last visit than usual, so I was thrilled.
Thanks for stopping by to check out Johnny in all of his Mario cuteness yesterday. Yes, they were back in their costumes last night and I was back taking more pictures of them:-) The busy 3 month end of the year season is officially kicked off for us whether it's 10/1 or not:-)
Hope you all have a great day...
