This is another image I came across last week and wondered why I hadn’t processed it because I don’t have many Little Blue Heron portraits in my portfolio. I like the heron’s look of concentration and the color of the water.
I had been photographing the Little Blue while sitting quietly in the lagoon and the heron moved much closer to me than I had expected a few times it came too close for me to focus on it. It didn’t seem to care at all about the crazy woman with the one big glass eye. I think I had never processed it because the neck of the bird isn’t sharply in focus due to my depth of field. I could have changed that but my shutter speed would have been too slow to photograph this active bird.
A friend of mine says I am too tough on myself in regards to my photography. Maybe they are right.
