Great Blue Heron


I see great blue herons often, but most won't pose for a close-up.

Not a good looking chap, if you ask me. But heck you're in a marsh so you get what you get.
Go Pats!

It's easy to see why that beak is a weapon.

Great bird photo. In fact, I've enjoyed your recent bird posts. The Sandhill Cranes migrate across Nebraska in the spring and fall. The Blue Herons live around here in summer.

These are such majestic birds, especially in flight! And this is a very nice photograph of one. You must have had a long lens! :)

What a neck, almost like a snake!

You must have a lot of patience to capture this bird. I've seen them around here, but never quite as close as this. Nice work!

Love the composition of this shot. So far this is my favorite shot of the year.
