Great Blue Heron from the summer


I thought I would share  a couple more shots of this heron...


We watched it forever and never did see it catch anything.


Just remembered I want to link this to I'd Rather B Birdin'

They (and the ones that live here) look like they should be bookkeepers... Good pictures!

Herons are blessed with endless patience, though it's difficult to imagine it would ever be able to glimpse its prey in such scummy water, though it may be on the look out for frogs.

This heron has an elegant long neck. I want to watch the moment when it catches a fish.

...Herons sure are patient.

I love 'em. Those herons...we could take lessons from them to learn patience. (Which I lack)

And, my thanks goes out to you for sharing this all with us birders at I'd Rather B Birdin this weekend.
