Great blue heron
Posted By: pingflood, 05-23-2009, 02:00 PM

I was out snapping pics of the baby crabs that are all over the beach right now and spotted this dude hanging out on the way back to the house.

20D + 400/5.6, ISO 400, 1/640 second, f/5.6

Thanks. I like how it looks like he almost is part of the tree; the legs are nearly the same color as the branch and the pointy feathers on his chest mimic the pine straw.

Oh yeah, here's the crab I was originally shooting. Little guy, maybe an inch across, but with a serious attitude!

Lot's of attitude out there, that heron has a tough-guy look on his face too.

Really great photo! DOF and sharpness are spot-on.
Only thing that distracts is the upper right corner branch but i guess it would be hard to crop out.
