Great Blue Heron

Great Blue Heron ©Jackie Brooks“Whether poised at a river bend or cruising the coastline with slow, deep wingbeats, the Great Blue Heron is a majestic sight. This stately heron with its subtle blue-gray plumage often stands motionless as it scans for prey or wades belly deep with long, deliberate steps. They may move slowly, but Great Blue Herons can strike like lightning to grab a fish or snap up a gopher. In flight, look for this widespread heron’s tucked-in neck and long legs trailing out behind.” (source)

  1. Thank you, Tom! I happened upon this scene so not very long. There were tall grasses that I hid behind which allowed me to get quite a few shots. This is my favorite of all of the ones I took. 🙂
