Photo Of The Day By David Connel

Photo By David Connel

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Blue Heron Pair Bonding” by David Connel. Location: Lake Texoma, Oklahoma.

“My go-to nature spot is a short drive from my house to Lake Texoma, on the border between Texas and Oklahoma,” explains Connel. “I have kayaked on the lake for decades, photographing the wildlife, especially the bird rookeries I’ve discovered through the years. This is one of my favorite images of a pair of courting blue herons.”

Exposure: 1/500 sec., f/7.1, ISO 500, 310mm.
