Same park as the Black-Crowned Night Heron above, but today found a Great Blue Heron. It pays to go everyday I can! Same bird, just very different light as it worked its way around the pond.

My first ever photo of a Heron. It was motionless in a shady part of the river with just the sun highlighting it. Exposing for the white plumage gave the background a darker appearance.

Thanks again. I am in Tucson and the park these were taken at is less than a mile from my house near Glenn and Craycroft! Check out other photos at the sites in my sig or on Facebook at Jeffry Scott photography! (I used to be a pro, but now work in medicine. I am hoping to start making some money with photography again, I miss it)

Ooo, didn't know there was a thread for herons and egrets.

Great Egret - also posted elsewhere. Didn't seem to mind me crawling through reeds, but when a branch snapped it seemed to have enough and took flight.

Thanks Steve, it's neat to watch them dump air and drop in for a landing.
