The other day on my way to Bethel Beach, I looked to my left and noticed this heron perched in a tree.
Naturally, I stopped in the middle of the road and, after ascertaining that no cars were coming, rolled my window down and snapped happily away.
I remember thinking the shots ought to come out OK because the light was good. However, my camera has some problems that I still haven't addressed, which means that otherwise OK pictures come out like this: all dark. The main reason I haven't sent my camera away to be fixed is because when it's set to the sports mode the issue goes away. Evidently I forgot to set it to sports mode this particular day.
Regardless, I did enjoy seeing Mr. Heron as he gazed out over the wetlands from his perch. He didn't seem to give two hoots about me, my camera, what setting it was on, or anything.
In other news, my friend Lauren received a very good report back from her doctor! Please visit her blog and cheer her on to the next chapter of her story. 2012 is going to be her year, I am convinced.
