Pull off of highway 47 before you get into the heart of Forest Grove.
Fern Hill Wetlands in northwest Oregon is one of my favorite local places to visit. Only a 10 minute drive from my house and it offers an unbelievable variety of wildlife. This Blue Heron was not intimidated by our presence at all and allowed us to shoot for as long as we liked as the sun set over the water. A perfect end to an early autumn evening.
