Heron Series --     "Proud Fella"

Great Blue Heron at
Blind Pass, Sanibel, FL

This fine bird was walking the beach at Blind Pass trying to con fisherman into sharing their goodies. He allowed us (I was with Darrel Miller) to photograph him for about half an hour.  This portrait against a background of water with breaking waves captures the elegance of this great bird.  It  was done on Velvia film at ISO-50 with a 300mm lens. In the bright sun and reflective sand the speed was 1/1250sec, and the result is super sharp even at very large print sizes. 

Prints are available in sizes up to 18x24.
Edition limit is 22 prints 7x10 and larger.
