The community bulletin board in Point Reyes Station, CA is a source of local advertising, announcements, and…messages. The postings change regularly, not unlike the tides of the ocean.

Close Up & Personal…Night Heron

If there is a single rule all photo enthusiasts should follow, it is to always have a camera of some kind with you. Photo Ops will present at the most inconvenient times and not always when you have your top gear with you.

Recently, I was passing through Lucchesi Park in Petaluma on a mid morning bicycle ride and noticed a white object up in one of the trees.  Upon closer observation I noticed that it was Night Heron that was well hidden as evidenced by the first photo below.

I had a pocket camera with me and realized that I would have to make it do.  Fortunately it had the ability for manual settings and I managed to pull off a fairly decent photo.  The trick was to maneuver close enough and to force the camera to focus on the bird instead of the branches.  See the second photo.
