The Blue Heron


What a lovely fellow this is and he doesn't even seem to mind me following him.


Ah ha! He's spotted some activity!


Slowly....


Bam! Sushi breakfast!


And on we go...

I absolutely love your blog! The sun never shines in Cleveland ;)

The Great Blue Heron is my favorite bird. Sort of scraggly, but so beautiful in flight. I would buy that last photo of him walking away!

Thanks, Amy, I'm glad you enjoy my blog. They surely can get scruffy, especially when molting. Sometimes I see them sitting atop a roof and they look like little old butlers out of '50's movies, hunched shoulders, half their height. Then they stretch up and fly away with such elegance. Ha!

Great story... great photos... I liked the 2nd one the most...

Yes, that's quite an image of him stalking. Pardon the comparison, but he reminds me of a cat creeping up on prey. ;-)

Sagar said...

yeah... that's some posture....

All photo's are great (as usual) - but I agree with Amy; that last is my favorite. The blue chair really seems to bring out the blue color of the bird! Gorgeous!
