Default great blue heron

went down to my "bird park" this afternoon, found it pretty quiet. the only obvious target was this great blue heron about 30 feet away, who posed quite nicely for me... 7D, 100-400 @ various focal lengths, f/7.1, auto shutter...

pssst! wanna buy a watch?? actually, this is how herons cool off... he was panting, and had his wings partly spread to get as much cooling as possible from the slight breeze...



a bit later, he decided to move...

....great group of images, just wonderful.

I love photographing the herons and egrets but I've never seen this stance, even as hot as we get to be in Texas.
