Great Blue Heron, Santa Cruz, California, USA by Tony Britton

Great Blue Heron photographed in Santa Cruz, California. I'm pleased with the pastel-like water effect in the background. This photo was captured as the heron was yawning after an especially exhausting session of preening!

I especially enjoy capturing portrait style images of the birds and wildlife that grace the Central Coast of California. My wife and I make the perfect point-and-shoot photography team. She points and I shoot!
