Thanks to the fellow photographer who tipped me off to this location.

A great opportunity to shoot Great Blue Herons. This is a popular fishing site, so the heron is somewhat accustomed to people.

I used Photoshop, with a bit of Topaz AI Noise, and AI Sharpen, and a small crop, too.

Excellent shot of the Great Blue Heron in flight! The background really makes the heron and the photo stand out. Nicely done!

I believe the first one is the better of the two.

It's pouring the rain here in Central KY tonight, so I may try to go to this site tomorrow and see if anything develops...
