I had a very relaxing weekend away in Westport and went for an early morning wander with my camera.
This heron was standing under a bridge but flew away as I approached so I thought my chance of a photograph was gone. But it rested by the bank of the river in great light for me. I’m very happy with this photo, light seems just right to me.
Post title is taken from the song titled Bait and Switch by The Shins. I’ve used this title as the heron stands so still that people often think it’s not a real bird. (Thanks to Emily Gallagher for telling me it’s a heron).
