Exploring Central Ontario (CANADA)...and beyond
We startled a GBH on our walk to the pond the other evening -- of course, I didn't have my camera. :)
He is a perfect specimen of a curmudgeon!
Great title for this one.
Hm-m-m wondering what he is thinking as he watches you?
he looks like he's out there on the lawn in his robe yelling at the neighborhood kidswonderful!!
He somehow reminds me of a Dr. Seuss character. Great shot!
Yes, a cranky looking old bird. Made for some great photos tho.Darla
Wouldn't you like to pick his brain for all that he has seen from up there on his high perch. What a handsome old coot ...Andrea @ From the Sol
He is mighty fine old specimen. Great shots!
exactly! we had 2 great egrets here one year that were 'pals'. i called 'em the curmudgeon brothers. :)
Maybe he's starting his moult . . .
Great photos and captions to go with!
They're very common here, yet like you, I can't stop taking their pictures!
Lol, I can see it swooping down on us all in a most disapproving & curmudgeonly manner (yup, he hears us for sure!)
Nice! They usually do look very grouchy! Still love them...
This has to be the 'grumpiest' bird I've ever seen. The first photo especially is a great picture.
You have ruffled his feathers! ;-))
They're so incredible!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Very cool...it seems every time I see one of these guys I don't have a good camera with me. Both shots are superb!
oh darn!! if you were going to get that close, what a shame it had to be one that looked so messy!!but it is thrilling just the same!
Great photos of an interesting looking bird.
he sure does look like an old man, still handsome though
He's very tall, and yes, he does look like a crusty old curmudgeon! Great shots!
They are beautiful birds, great shots of the GB Heron. Hope you are having a great week!
This is an amazing capture - great job! Don't worry about the water rides. I'm actually in that raft with my 2 adult daughters. I'm the one in the plastic wrap so I won't be sloshing around afterwards. hahahaha.
I haven 't seen this bird around here, but we have a lot of geese and herons and swans as well.Your photos are always great! Have a great Wednesday!
He does look like a character from "Grumpy Old Men"! LOL!
When I saw him, I thought the same thing. Like that shot. The Great Blue Heron is still a noble bird no matter what age:)
Awesome he reminds me of the movie Grumpy Old Men :) You always get the best shots.B
those are great shots and he is full of personality! We have lots of them around here, he looks very cranky!
He does look totally put out--a total bad feather day. :-)
He is great! I think to have a look at one of those, even if he gets all huffy at being disturbed..is so great, hahahaa. I watch for birds, in the garden, as I drive...but we do not have these in our inland part of the world. Lucky you.
Kate said it all.
You caught him before he had time to do his morning grooming. I look a bit bedraggled in the morning, too.
This post made me laugh. He does look like a crusty old dude! Awesome!
I think I know her. In fact, I'm just positive she's my roommate! She, not he!
Wow wow wow - beautiful shots!
Good photos of this heron!We don't have exactly this one here in Sweden, but I'm familar with that behavior. They notice everything and get off!Greetings Pia in Sweden
He does look like he would have a thing or two to say about things!Nice pictures.Stewart M - AUstraliaPS: thanks for being involved on WBW
They always make me think of old men in a trench coat with a top hat on....
He looks so stately and majestic. They are very difficult to photograph here because they are keen to every movement, apparently not too comfortable being too close to people.
He is so cool, love those long feathers~
He does look like an old, wise soul, doesn't he? Thanks for stopping by.
