Shooting from above is usually not a good perspective but every now and then it works in ones favor. I accidentally spooked this Great Blue Heron fishing next to the Boardwalk at the Bosque. The boardwalk runs over a pond and the deck is maybe six to eight feet above the water. That plus another 5 feet to the camera was plenty of height for this situation

When the heron took off low over the water - bingo!
