Great Blue Landing in Silhouette

Spent about 1.5 hrs lying around at Bolivar Flats yesterday taking shorebird photos.  Go figure.  As I was concentrating on a group of Willets, this Great Blue Heron started squawking above me as he circled twice and then finally landed fairly close to me.  I tracked him as he was coming in for a landing,  which was a challenge while laying down with a ground pod.  Got my sweatshirt all twisted up while spinning myself around on my stomach.  Luckily for me, he landing into the sun which produced a nice series of silhouette shots.  This one came out the best with his wings outstreatched and feet just starting to enter the water.

Taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens on Skimmer ground pod.

1/2000 sec @ F6.3, evaluative metering, + 2/3 exposure compensation, ISO 250
