After work yesterday, I went out for a paddle on La Chute River and Lake Champlain. It was a fantastic journey as I ran into so much wildlife. In fact, it was so much fun that I decided to go back out today. 

My trip out today was such a blast that I spent roughly five hours out there. I saw great blue heron, night heron, green heron, osprey, bald eagles, painted turtles, and gulls. Everywhere I turned I saw something knew. Most of the wildlife split as soon as it saw me coming, but some of it cooperated and let me get photo's.

My favorite was a great blue heron who sat in front of me and posed for well over 90 minutes. He/she periodically moved a bit, but never too far (and often times moved closer to me). I kept hoping this guy would catch a decent sized fish, a frog, or pretty much anything else neat that would create a cool photo. Sadly, all he/she caught was the worlds smallest fish. I sat forever in the hot sun and watched, but no luck. Eventually I decided to leave and he/she also decided to go.

The shot I decided to share today of the great blue heron I watched for a very long time is a fill the frame shot (no crop whatsoever). I almost felt like this bird liked me because it cooperated so well.
