blue herons working on nest. We spent a good hour to watching the male fly about 50 feet from us to find twigs and then bring them back to the nest which was about 20 yards from us.

Kori Bustard Didn’t go to Africa expecting many birds, but came home with many many images. Kori Bustard was one of my favourites (amongst others☺)
A re-share from a few years ago.

I redid the animated GIF from Join in Daily and slowed it down.
Never did an animated GIF before and didn't "play" enough before posting it earlier.

Thx +Dusty Gedge Hadn't thought of Buster Keaton, but you are right.
Maybe next time I'll use more frames and make it smoother.

Story
Introduction
Been shooting for a lot of years. Moved from slides to digital in 2004. (Still have 25,000+ slides stored)

Have tended to be mainly a nature photographer, especially birds and mammals.

Lately have become more of a travel photographer taking more "record" shots as have become a "cruiser" and that does not leave time in any one port to do really serious photography.
