STOPS ALONG THE WAY

GREAT BLUE HERON (THREE PHOTOGRAPHS)

32 Comments

I have had few opportunities this summer to see or photograph Great Blue Herons. In fact we’ve seen fewer birds of any kind this year. This handsome bird, although a distance from shore, was not hiding in the reeds so we were able to get clear photographs. I hope for more sightings as I have to get my fill before the cold weather sets in and the herons head south.

  2. Magnificent birds – hope you get more sightings now that the young have fledged. Hard to believe fall migration is eminent!

  3. I had to smile seeing this picture. Last week my daughter and I took a one time painting class and we both painted a Blue Heron. When my daughter was young there was a Blue Heron eating the fish in my little goldfish pond while I was sleeping. When I got up she told me to look because there was a blue flamingo at our pond eating our fish……hahahahaha We laugh all the time remembering this and did the painting so we won’t forget.

  8. Lovely images, we find them in good numbers in our region. They are not that shy but once gets disturbed flyaways far.

  10. They are really special; their unique look and the way they move and stalk and stand still for so long. That last part is good for posing for the camera. I love seeing them.
