I was surprised I got close to this Great Blue Heron for a close up portrait. They have been difficult to get close to even in my pickup.
How I Got The Shot: Great Blue Heron Close Up Portrait
This Great Blue Heron was near the bridge just before starting the auto tour road. This was at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.
I had my camera and lens resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
