Just before we arrived the Top after a 4,5 Hour Hike to the Säntis, 2500 mts, we saw this Capricorn there. 🤩
I have never seen one so close and was so astonished, that I took the Camera and took a few Pictures of him. ▪
I mean, if this dude got a Instagram Profile, these could definitely be one of his Profile Pictures right?😅 ▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪

It's quite uncommon for me to incorporate black and white edits into my photos, but this photograph deemed itself worthy. One of two young Great Blue Heron living in Greenfield Park took off in the strict opposite direction. I managed to grab the focus on the bird's feet and with slight manual adjustment the moving wings came into focus as well. This photo was converted into black and white to feed off the emotion of a departing acquaintance. Even if you have an enemy, their departure brings a loss of color to life.
