Radnor Reflections, August 4, 2011

It was a busy morning at Radnor for herons, mushrooms and plein air painters, and we took pictures of them all. This guy took off from a log making a terrible racket. I was ready for him, or as ready as you can be armed with a compact camera.

  1. Nice grab and shoot! Caught a good moment in takeoff- just needs indignant sound: “Hey! You’re scaring all my fish away! Boy, there goes the neighborhood.”
    If this bird uses this as an habitual perch, you might get a chance with your full gear, too! I’d be tempted to show up with my hat-blind and play the early morning patience game, but I just KNOW I’d melt and make the trail impassible for other wanderers.
    Cheers!

  2. It was the first time I heard one ‘speak’.
