...a wild Great Blue Heron that allowed me to get within 10 feet.
These were taken in a creek at the Muir Woods National Monument, from my last week's trip to San Francisco. I know the quality of these two are far from those wonderful GBH photos posted in the Birds forum, but they are my best GBH captures so far.
I think i can officially crown GBH as my Nemesis Bird.
