got some sun this afternoon, so after work i went to a park close to my home to see if there was anything worth shooting. while i was there, one these two Blue Herons, which had been just sitting on pilings about 15 feet apart, decided to try to intimidate his neighbor. not sure why, if it's territory or mating, but he didn't get far. right after i shot these, he went back to the piling he'd been perched on and stayed there till i left...

Beautiful...

Maybe you could make some prints or put these photos on CDs for your local birders and school kids? :-) :idea:

these birds were about 80-100m away, and the sun was fully below the horizn... i couldn't quite get enough shutter speed to freeze them, but under the lighting and distance conditions, i thought these came out pretty well...
