One crisp fall morning, I stood at the Boardwalk railing and watched a Great Blue Heron stroll along the water’s edge. I already photographed the bird many times and waited to see if it would do something astonishing to finish the session.
Then the unexpected happened. A happy young man jogged down the boardwalk toward the water. Well, nothing particularly special about that, except the fellow sang at the tops of his lungs.
The great bird became alert and stopped in its tracks. I raised and focused the camera.
At the point the young man turned and trotted off in another direction, the Great Blue Heron belted out the most horrendous squawk. I gasped, my finger twitched and the camera clicked on its own. The result was this very angry bird photo. Hope you like it.
