mating great blue herons

Rookery in Venice, Florida

...it was practically dark when I made this
photo; the male flew in to roost for the night,
made the greeting gesture and did the deed.. in
less than two minutes...ain't love grand???

here's the foreplay... the photo is so crappy and noisy
that I made it into a black and white...

Canon EOS 20D ,Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
1/320s f/5.6 at 400.0mm iso800 handheld full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Fabulous shot, Mary.
And I am not even going to make any smart remarks.
