Description

This is a beautiful area of the central coast and I hike there on a weekly basis. One morning, this great blue heron was perched on the fence. I slowly approached it, clicking all the time, and got this ONE shot of it just beginning to take flight. You can see Morro Rock just barely in the background, which is across the bay in Morro Bay. Each season has it's own appeal, but spring is especially beautiful with the green hills and wildflowers in bloom.
