After spotting it at about 60 mph on the highway, I pulled to the far side of the road and walked back on the opposite side of the road as the heron, as to not spook it. Crossing the road, it was still there hunting fish in the canal paralleling the highway. It was rather windy, and bright, so I knew I’d have to shoot fast, and approach with the light coming from the side, as I was using a circular polarized filter. This filter is used to cut harsh reflections and generally help balance the light and colors, very handy as the bright sunlight was reflecting off the water and back onto the heron.
