I took this photo last week at the Venice Rookery. This was my first trip to the Rookery, a place I have been wanting to visit ever since I saw all the other bloggers beautiful pictures. We had other things on our agenda that day so my goal was just to find it so that when I went out on a shoot I would be familiar with were it was. I did not have my tripod or DSL camera, just a Canon point and shoot. This picture of the Great Blue Heron was my best of the 10 minutes I got to spend there. I really wanted good photos of the Black-crowned Night Herons as I never get to see them in my neighborhood. I did get to see them and took many photos but the birds were too deep in the trees and the photos were too dark or shadowy. This wraps up January with N is for nest and kicks off February with F is for feathers.
