There are several reasons I walk early in the morning.
The light is best for photography. It is quiet. And, in the right tidal conditions, the birds I like to watch are most active. The conditions were just right when I saw the Great Blue Heron at the edge of the water. Most likely, it was digesting its breakfast.
To see if I could get close enough for a good photo, I chanced it with the ticks, hoping they didn’t like dry grass. Gritting my teeth, I kept to a trail created by others and made my way through the tall grass. The large bird knew I was coming, and I knew it knew. I got the camera ready.
The second the Great Blue Heron moved, I stopped in my tracks and focused the camera. That’s when it looked over its shoulder. I snapped the photo, then turned and left the beautiful bird to digest its breakfast. Any ticks in the area were sleeping in that day. Happy and grateful for the photo, I went home to my own breakfast.
