Blue Heron in flight
I paid a short visit to Lake Murray here in San Diego about a week ago. I went a little late in the morning and there wasn’t much flying until I saw this fella approaching from the other side of the lake. He flew right at me until veering off just before he flew over. That gave me a pretty good opportunity to catch the full details of his wing feathers as he past by in a cloudless blue sky. Hope you enjoy – click for closeup details of the wing.
