Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

Great blue heron

Pat and I went by Prospect Lake a couple of days ago, late in the afternoon. The lake was partially frozen but there were plenty of waterfowl about, mostly Canada geese. There was a single great blue heron wading into the frigid water. He definitely noticed me taking his picture, regarding me warily from a distance. I was using quite a long lens, but when I got too close, he took wing and flew out of range. Next time I'll bring an even longer lens. What a beautiful creature.
