Great Blue Herons and tiny-but-no-less-great sandpipers


Here are some pics from our time at the Esquimalt Bird Sanctuary just outside Victoria, BC.

I love this high speed shot of a great blue heron fishing – the light was just right and I caught the droplets from his plunge.

Another high speed fishing shot.

Check these cuties out – these are sandpipers hunting for small invertebrates to munch on by the shoreline.

Belly shot of the flock looking for a new spot.

…And another. I spent more time (and memory) than I’d like to admit following these guys around.

So much that by the time I gave up on them is was evening :) So I’ll leave you with some evening silhouettes of Great Blue Herons fishing.
