A Quick Shot

As we were driving down the road I saw a heron take off from a nearby pond. I grabbed my camera (which happened to be in my lap), turned it on, and my husband slowed down so we could try and capture its elegance. My camera is just a point-and-shoot, basically, so the zoom isn't as tight as fancy cameras that cost thousands of dollars. But I think this is my first shot of a bird in flight where you can actually tell what it is! These birds reside all over the WWV, since our land is quite marshy in some places, making for good feeding for the blue herons.
