Great Blue Heron Fishing

Great Blue Heron Fishing

Great Blue Heron Fishing  On my walkabouts, it’s easy to pass up species common to the area like the Great Blue Heron.  Great Blue Heron are both common and beautiful.  With changing light particularly late in the day, several images of the same heron can look quite different.  And, if the heron are accustomed to people in the area, it does not take a very long lens to capture nice images.

Great Blue Heron Sitting  This Great Blue Heron stayed in the same place on the bank of the lake all day.  Sometimes, it stood up. Sometimes, it sat.  But, it stayed there.  I thought it might be injured or sick.  Finally, in later afternoon, it left.  I did not see it leave so I picked up the camera and went out to see if it was anywhere to be seen.  As I was walking along the lakeshore, it was fishing in the shallows.  Nice to see it was in good health!
