As I approached Richland Creek, I spotted this large Grey Heron standing attentive on a boulder, approximately 40-feet away, and used my zoom lens to get a closer shot. It was apparent, judging from water marks on the rock (see lower right corner) that this bird had been in and out of the water more than once. Though aware of my proximity, the Grey Herron remained focused, waiting and watching for an unsuspecting fish, until an opportunity presented itself – lunch! If you’d like an opportunity to enjoy a print, several options are available in my gallery at Fine Art America – check it out!

While recently visiting The Sinks, located along the Little River in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, I observed a coyote loitering within 30-feet of several people, most of which had their cameras clicking. See more.
I was hiking along rocks near the water at Twin Falls, in Tennessee, when I spotted this Egret in the distance. Or, perhaps I should say – it spotted me!
These birds, like the Heron, are good fliers, but not so quick to become airborne. As such, they pay close attention to their surroundings, monitoring closely for any incursions within their space which might necessitate flight.
Not wanting to create a disturbance by walking too close, I turned to ascend a 50′ stairway leading away to the parking area. At the top, I saw that the Egret continued to assess my albeit diminished proximity. Even after walking a short distance, and then returning, I remained under the watchful eye of the Egret!
Note: these photographs were taken using a zoom lens, at a distance farther than it appears.
