This is a compilation of videos taken of the blue heron that visits a local pond each year, throughout March and April of this year. The videos have been arranged to form a loose narrative.
I spent about fifteen minutes following a blue heron around a pond near my office this morning and making video clips, which I edited in iMovie. This is the finished product.

Last April, I was fortunate enough to catch some photos of one. Whenever one shows up, it usually hangs out for … Continue reading Blue Heron, Atlanta, GA, 1 April 2014
