Great Blue Heron (GBH)
GBHs are stately birds, don't you think?
Is this GBH laughing?
Bwahaha! Sometimes dignified looking but not always, as this GBH seems to be demonstrating.
Waiting for a tasty fish to swim by
But they do know how to maintain their focus, standing motionless for long periods...
Stretching it's wing
although sometimes they need to change direction and even stretch.
I am linking to Saturday Critters HERE.
It won't be long until these beautiful birds are gone for the season.
Beautiful shots, these magnificent birds seem to live everywhere I have lived. I like the laughing photos.
I was going to say, have they taken up residence so far north?
Nice portraits of the Great Blue! I cannot resist the temptation to photograph them, however common they are here in Florida.
I've always liked them. They have such intense focus while fishing.
It is always a delight to find one standing down at the pond. Beautiful shots!
he is laughing and I love it. that stretched wings is amazing
Really neat picture of him stretching. Herons are like dancers, they always look good no matter what position they're in.
I have always liked watching the Herons. We have them all year round but they are usually skittish. When they see my camera zoom off they go. You got some nice pics. MB
love these pterodactyls!
The life of a Heron.
The life of human.
Yikes! I pity the fish that casualy swims by that beak.
Very regal and great shots! Happy Weekend!

I saw a video the other day of a GBH catching and swallowing a gopher!
Ah, so dignified looking indeed!! And terrific captures as always, EG!! Love the one-legged shot! Enjoy your weekend!!!
Photos are very great.Your blog is amaizing.
Lovely shots and what a stately bird this is.
Very elegant indeed!
Fabulous GBH photos! I don't get to see one of these magnificent birds very often.
awww, great shots, one of my favorites!!!
Whenever you see herons in photographs they always look a bit scruffier than you imagine them to be. These are some excellent shots.
Fabulous! Your heron pictures are just perfect and perfectly beautiful and sharp. That last pose is super!!! He posed many ways for you. They are a truly amazing birds to see, they are so tall and their necks are so long! Even in flight they are gorgeous in their speed and beauty.
They will soon head south and I haven't even been out and about to see them yet! ;-(
Beautiful captures my friend.
PS. Dry humor - 'Provincial Bird' is more appropriate? :) 1.5 years in Ontario have spoiled me :) :)
Nice shots of the heron! Such a pretty bird.
Dignified, for sure.
A truly beautiful bird, and these portraits of it are wonderful.
Awesome shots of these handsome birds!
The GB Heron is a stately looking bird.. Great series..Thank you for linking up to my critter party. Enjoy your week!

You got some great shots of this stately bird. Sometimes we see one that comes up from our pond to the meadow by the house where they love to catch grasshoppes!
Gorgeous shots.I love that stretch pose.

I think they are. Love that last shot. It's amazing.
I also agree that this heron does have really noble look♬♬♬ Such thin legs and great wing! I can find mostly egret here :-)
