I was totally involved in photographing dive-bombing Brown Pelicans, when this Great Blue Heron landed right near me. The Great Blue Heron was one of the first birds to catch my eye and interest me in Aviary art. I love to watch them, each visual encounter leaves a lasting impression on me. Sometimes it’s hard to choose which bird to paint.
This particular Heron was so at home and at ease with me so close; I turned my camera on her! It was fascinating to watch, as she walked slowly from the sandy beach into the light green, shallow waters of Sanibel, Florida. Poised and confident. Unafraid. She stood, beautiful to look at and longing to be admired. I had to paint her!
