Weekly Photo Challenge: Launch (of 3 Herons)

This week’s challenge is about finding a photo, or photos, that say launch.

Last year, early one morning, there were three lovely Herons on the bank of the canal, in my backyard.  I tiptoed out, camera in hand, to see if I could capture them as they enjoyed the quiet morning, side by side.

I managed to capture this first photo without their knowing it, but it took only moments for them to know I was there:

And, in the very next moment, the guy in the middle is unnerved and probably says to the others, as he’s launching, “Hey Buds, I’m not sticking around,” as he readies himself for take off:

And there he goes:

Now that number one is gone, number two is getting out of Dodge, and number three is right on his heels, or rather wings, getting ready for take off:

And here’s the last glimpse of number three, as he’s heading out of the frame and on his way:
