I feel very fortunate to be able to witness some amazing wildlife and birds on Vancouver Island and on the Gulf Islands. As one who is new to birding, I am thoroughly enjoying the challenge of making images on location, of these majestic birds; the great blue heron. (ardea herodias fannini)
Their wingspan, as you likely already know, is massive, and it’s pretty incredible to watch so many of these tall, long-legged wading birds navigate the tiny treetop branches in their rookery with relative ease.
With gratitude for nature and these opportunities, I share with you my images, and yes, I will be going back for more, as they soon will breed, lay their eggs and have chicks.
