While walking at Delta Ponds this morning, I noticed someone standing at the end of a pedestrian bridge. I walked down to investigate and saw that he had worked up very close to a Great Blue Heron that landed on the bridge railing. It looked like they were getting acquainted. Naturally, I took the opportunity to capture some pictures. This is quite unusual, that such birds stand still long enough to get close. Paul and I walked to a few different spots after this, and all of the herons and egrets we saw flew away if we got very close.
It was great getting acquainted with Paul myself. We exchanged information and will stay in touch. Paul is a fine photographer himself and I look forward seeing more of his photos.
