the other morning, while photographing this family, i spotted a blue heron wading in the low tide. so i ditched my friends to try to catch a few photos. i know, fickle aren’t i?? but i love these birds. they hang out on the central coast but i never seem to have my camera at the right moment. so i didn’t mind going ankle deep in the tide to steal a couple pics. and this bird was as tall as i am–no kidding. then he decided to take flight so i could capture that, too. beautiful.
