14 Dec 11	  This image was one I took during one of our -3.5 June low tides, with a Great Blue Heron situated between me and another beach inhabitant. The bird was watching us both carefully, and as neither of us were making any threatening moves, remained where he was for several minutes intermittently stopping his fishing to assure himself that we were staying put. While I wouldn't normally put the additional mammal in an image, I thought that this time it would serve to add size perspective, for both the foreground and the background. You should be able to make out at least three of the vessels on the water. I've cropped this image significantly and that accounts for the little bit of blocking up of the sky, plus added a wee bit of sharpening, otherwise, it is a straight shot.  ISO 800, 1/800 sec @ f /16.
