Man, it’s been too long since I’ve taken the ole camera out of the camera bag. It’s been even longer since I’ve blogged or posted photos. I was working in Nashville, one of my favorite cities, over the past three weeks. A couple of co-workers and I stopped by Max Caldwell Park in between Gallatin and Hendersonville after work one day. As soon as we pulled in, I saw one Great Blue Heron near the shore so I headed straight for him. However, I didn’t get very close before I scared him off.
I waited for him to land and then snapped a couple of shots (above) before looking around for something else to capture. I saw another Heron, a huge Heron, a couple hundred yards away. I slowly walked towards him. The closer I got, the more still he got. I thought he was watching me and I figured he was about to take off. If that was the case, I was going to be ready to start shooting. It turns out that he was fishing. Lucky for me, I already had my camera up to my eye. The next thing I knew, his head was underwater so I started snapping shots.
I had to thank my co-workers for this, they made me go back up to my hotel room and get my camera. I was just going to leave it in the room that day.
