I have been photographing blue herons for a couple of years now and have thousands of photos of them as they are my favorite subject. This canvas is a painting of my favorite real life photograph, as you can see if you view this link – . In flight they leave me mesmerized and speechless. I feel like I am watching flying dinosaurs from eons past bringing an indescribable grace and magic to the present, as well as all their goofiness when stationary. There is a moment just before landing when they seem to be in suspended animation and it is the moment I constantly try to capture. I find the Blues to be very good at avoiding me just as I am about to click my shutter, as if they are enjoying playing games with me; and so I shall continue to pursue them longing for a perfect photograph and regretting all the ones that got away.
