Great Blue Herons

Here are a few more heron photos from Saturday’s fabulous walk on the dike.

This female was following the male, and as soon as she got too close, he flew off.  I don't know if that type of behaviour is part of their mating ritual, or he just wasn't interested in being near her. 1/500sec, f5.6, ISO1000

Tired of being pursued, he's up and away. 1/320sec, f5.6, ISO1000

My camera doesn't handle high ISO all that well, and the noise reduction option in Lightroom leaves the photo a bit soft.  But, it was an interesting sighting and the first time I was able to see a male and female together, so I'm posting them anyways :) 1/320 sec, f5.6, ISO1000
