Taking Off

The shore birds are migrating, and I was lucky enough to capture this Great Blue Heron taking off into flight a few blocks from home in Gambacorta Marsh. I think it is probably my best bird shot ever!!!

THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO COMMENTED ON THE GREAT BLUE HERON TAKING OFF ON APRIL 8, 2006 AND MADE IT THE NUMBER 1 IMAGE ON APRIL 9, 2006 IN THE DAY ALL GALLERIES! YOUR SUPPORT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!
