Great blue heron in a pond near me
One of my goals this year was to get some good shots of great blue herons, which in years past has not been easy as they have so many places to hide in the cat-and-nine tails so prevalent in my area. But for some unknown reason I have been in the right place at the right time this year. I LOVE it!
This heron was NOT in the perfect spot to get a super photo - a bit too shady for my taste. But the heron made me happy when it decided to jump out of the water and fly to a better fishing spot twenty or thirty feet away. Unfortunately it flew to an even shadier location but at least I got the shot of the heron in air.
I am linking to Watery Wednesday where you can find many more watery photos.
