Bird....big bird....really big bird! (Blue Heron perhaps?), originally uploaded by Photomike07.
Just seconds after firing off a few exposures, this winged beast took flight. Guess he had more important things to get to?
You know, the nice thing about a slower economy and housing market is the opportunity for these critters to enjoy their native habitat a little more. There has been a lot of insanely selfish over development here is South Florida over the past few years. Neighborhood after neighborhood built on precious land full of houses that the end buyer could never afford in the first place, but I am sure you are quite aware of all that. I must admit, its nice to see it slow down a bit.
As far as this image, I did a little experiment with a couple of textures and a little Topaz filters. Hope ya like :)
