I’m just an amateur photographer, so sometimes great opportunities for marvelous shots are lost due to my inexperience. This was the case recently when a spectacular heron modeled for me, but all my shots alas, came out blurry. A photo disappointment for sure, but grist for some watercolor sketches. Step 1 and 2 below.
I know, it’s blurry. I’d just arrived at the blind, camera still in the case, when this magnificent heron soared from nowhere, into my view. This photo illustrates MY thrill at capturing even a blurred image of this beauty.
