Blue Heron in Flight
Lens: 18-250mm Camera: K3 Photo Location: Fountain, CO 
Posted By: Bob Harris, 06-25-2014, 05:38 PM

Being from the Mojave Desert I don't see many large birds, in fact the raven is about the largest we have. We were down at Fountain Creek and I caught this heron taking off and flying across the small lake at the park, quite a thrill for me to get some photos.

I was happy with the photos considering the quick shoot and this is the first time I've seen one in person so I was very happy.
