This was a shot I had just happen to get. The funny part is I was on my way to go capture a huge group of nesting herons when I saw this guy in the pond near our house. I almost drove by but the scene was just too tempting. I knew what he was doing and parked the truck and was able to succesfully sneak up on him and then just waited for that magical moment. So be patient, and be ready for that perfect moment and then fire away!!
BTW, The nesting herons were another great experience that I will share in the days to come!
Also:One of my favorite bloggers and podcasters Scott Bourne stole my thunder :-)) and made it look like I am copying him when he posted about almost the same feelings about the progression of wildlife shots.(and you can ask my wife, she has had to listen to me complain about non-action or bad light for my wildlife shots for quite sometime!! LOL!! )
