In search of the White Heron

Ellenm1 and I went to shoot the White Herons in the pond on the side of the highway. We tramped through 8 foot high cattails in our brave attempt to get up close. This is however as close as we got. I took this shot with my wide angle, the camera on the tripod, the tripod held up over my head as high as I could hold it, and a 10 second delay on the shutter so i would have enough time to get the camera up in the air. I missed the pond, but caught two heron. It was an adventure.
