I've chronicled the seasons of a pond near my home for five years in a blog, SilverLining-MaryMcAvoy. Through every season, I've worked at getting "the" perfect shot of a great blue heron. The bird invites the lens to focus and try...and try...and try. Through the years, I've taken some good shots, and a handful of pretty-near perfect shots - well, as perfect as any photographer might achieve! Enjoy what I've put in this gallery!
