As careful as I was, I couldn't get a decent shot of the Blue Heron cautiously hanging around the college pond. I'm posting this shot anyway - a challenge to myself to be better prepared (with my zoom) when we meet again!
First attempt at a close-up of an eye. This indoor side-lit shot using a LED flash light washed out the nice green of Shannon's eyes, so I converted this shot to B&W. My next attempt (late in the year) will be outdoors using sunlight.
