Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Hiding or Camouflaged

I sometimes see a Blue Heron sitting on the banks of our local pond. As soon as he hears me approaching he usually takes flight- straight across to the other side. Sometimes he hides, perhaps to keep his potential catch unaware that he is there. This time although he was hiding within the thicket of the branches of the trees, which also served to camouflage him,  I was able to sneak up close enough at last to get a shot!

  1. I like how you have the bird captured and hidden until you enlarge the photo and really look, Lisa! 🙂 I love blue heron’s and all birds, Smiles, Robin

  2. I love these guys. There was a smallish creek running right next to my office of many years and though I rarely caught sight of the Great Blues, I knew they were often there. My favorite part f their visits was the sound of their departure…a pretty steep flight straight up through the trees. I have no words to describe that one and only wing-flapping sound!

    Thanks for this photo!

  3. I have been having a lot of problems with this because I don’t like showing pictures in black and white in which the main subject is hard to see. I consider them sub-par pictures. You’ve done a great job with a hard subject!
