One bird, many looks

While photographing at Wakodahatchee Wetlands last weekend, I had a Great Blue Heron walk right under the boardwalk that I was standing on, passing directly below me. It is not everyday you get to look straight down on a heron. I took a lot of pictures as the bird passed below me, going from the dark shadowy waters into the brighter sunlit water.

I found it interesting to see how much the images changed as the bird walked this path. It reminded me to continuously work a subject for as long as you can because you never know where the best picture will be.

And this last image I took when the bird was just below me.
