Great Blue Heron

 Great Blue Heron, wings up

This photo makes the GBH (Great Blue Heron) look a bit  prehistoric...or is that just me?

 Closeup of hunting GBH

The Blue Heron is one spectacular creature. He should look prehistoric. Scientist say they decedents of the dinosaurs.

Awesome shots of the GB heron, they are beautiful. I love to watch them fishing. Have a happy day!

Rather small pickings, I'd say. :-)

There's one at the pond near here, I often disturb him (or her, or possibly them) when I go for my walk.

You got wonderful close up images, I love this gracious bird so much! Last Sunday I saw 5 herons near my place. They were on a field among some cows and for me was a surprise because generally I see only one heron, I mean alone always.
Lovely post, thanks for sharing.

Stunning shots, Tina! You are right, that first one does look prehistoric.

Lowell said...

Great job! I don't know about prehistoric but that first shot is hysterical!

Re your comment on Ocala: An 81-year old man was killed the other day on the golf course I usually play on Sundays. It started raining and because he couldn't see very well he drove his cart into a sand trap which caused it to roll over and crush him. Very sad.

Marvellous EG!

Silver Parrot said...

Wonderful shot with those wings up! And yes, I agree you can see the pre-historic origins - maybe he likes to pretend he's a velociraptor.

mick said...

Great close-up photos. The bird looks amazing!

Kathy said...

I've heard that birds are closest to dinosaurs than any other creature (haven't I heard that?) That first photo is a piece of art. At first I thought it might be a beautiful figurine!

TexWisGirl said...

Ruth Hiebert said...

I agree that this bird has that pre-historic look.Lovely shots that you got.

Leora said...

Wow! Looks like something out of a movie - Jurassic Park 25?

Yes, I have always beheld the dinosaur too!
