Eagles and Herons In Action

First, I would like to thank my friend Ba Huynh for making the below pictures available for this blog. Many of the shots required much watching and waiting behind a tripod mounted camera. This approach, requiring the photographer to anticipate the action and plan such things as camera location in advance, allows Ba to capture pictures I often miss with my catch it when it happens walk around style. That being said, the really exciting aspect is that all of these images were all taken within the Columbus city limits. Truly nature at our doorstep!

Thanks again Ba for making your wonderful photos available. Through the many birders, nature enthusiasts, and photographers I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know I’m constantly reminded how important it is to discover one’s passion and allow it to take you on that privileged adventure we call life.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I wish we had your herons. Ours just stand and pretend to be statues, and when they tire of that they fly away.
    There are some great shots here. I like the one of the eagle with the squirrel. Those are hungry birds!

  2. These are great photos no matter who shot them! I wish that I had Ba’s patience as well, as I’ve often thought that his approach is the best for getting such images.
