Please bear with me -- soon they'll leave these increasingly autumnal latitudes and I'll stop
With the big bird photos.
Meanwhile, I can't help myself. It seems to me that this fall I've seen more Great Blue Herons than I ever have in my entire life up to now. (Of course, I might be seeing the same two or three happy herons over and over again, but if it's just an illusion, it's a powerful one.) I spotted this one yesterday, wading out into the sunset on a fishing expedition at Tiedeman's Pond in Middleton. Lately this seems to be almost the only thing I'm photographing, which is ironic, because I really don't have the equipment for it (you should really have at least a 400mm lens, perhaps with an extender). I do what I can.
