My trip out west was great but it’s nice to be back home and to take a trip to the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma after being away for over a month. As soon as I arrived at the refuge, I spot this Great Blue Heron catching fish. I was able to finally get enough light to start photographing just as it caught this large fish. It didn’t gulp it down as fast as it normally does because it was so large.
I was going to spend some time photographing this Great Blue Heron but a man arrived and ruined that for me. I usually don’t do a lot of complaining when people ruin a photo opportunity for me but this guy was bad.
It is very obvious that I am photographing this area because you can’t miss my large camera and lens. The man comes over next to me and throws a net toward the Heron scaring it away. I started to say something but I doubt it would have done any good. Just because I have a camera instead of fishing equipment should I not get the same respect? I wonder how he would have felt if he was fishing and I threw rocks into the water scaring the fish.
Sorry for complaining but I just needed to vent. Life is good!
