Wild Bird Wednesday

This is a real treat as the Great Blue Heron usually departs when I get to close.

I see him down at the pond frequently.

But he is very good at blending into his surroundings and sometimes I am almost on top of him before I realize he is there.

I have never been able to get a picture of him in flight as once he takes to the air he is very fast.



  1. Oh wow that's one BIG BURD!!! Totally pawesome pictures ♥♥♥

  2. Mommy said to tell you that she actually got a picture of one standing on a pier BUT she had to reallllllly crop it. That didn't make it very detailed.

    1. Mommy was very pleased with how close she managed to get. She has been taking stalking lessons from us. For a human she is purrty good.

  3. They are beautiful birds. We're glad you got some nice pictures of him.

  4. Yup, they are furry shy!
    And oh so stately and beautiful to watch.

    Great job nabbing this one with your lens!
