Great Blue Heron


A fisherman in Goodland placed a bait fish on the stern of his boat,
to lure a nearby great blue heron.

Always interesting to watch herons stalk their prey. Or in this case a freebie.

Great photos of this beautiful bird. We see these birds in the summer hanging out at our lakes, but can never get this close.

This one looks quite distinctive. I haven't seen one here yet, but they do spend a good part of the year in these parts.

I love the GBHs -- especially when they've nabbed a bite to eat!

The second and third photos show the heron dong what herons are supposed to do.
