I spent quite a bit of time on the water this Labor Day weekend with only a few images to show for it. I encountered a few wood ducks but they were much to wild to get into camera range. I did see an osprey a couple of times but like the ducks it kept its distance.
This Great Blue Heron did allow me to approach quite closely with the boat a number of times giving me a few opportunities for flight shots.
I usually prefer to display my wildlife images in color but for a change I gave this one the B&W treatment in Photoshop by applying a gradient map adjustment layer, a trick my son Chad learned at a Scott Kelby seminar recently.
