Great Blue Heron! They are very graceful, which makes their awkward squawk to incongruous.
I leave for heron land tomorrow!

Hot over in Mississippi? Just a rhetorical question Michael - no need to answer. Birds are smart though - hanging around the water. Pappy

It's not all luck, Michael - you have to be there with your camera ready, watching. You're becoming quite the photographer!

Michael: Not luck, it was an opportunity taken. Very nicely done.

Ohhh, I am so jealous of you being out and about taking pictures!! :)

This one is stunning!!

If I'm up to it, my hubby is going to take me over to Starved Rock here in Illinois. I've never been and it's supposed to be beautiful. I hope we go, as I'm craving to get out and take some new pictures.

Love its shadow on the ground.
Well done.

Beautiful shots. I hope you child will be better soon. I remember when my daughter had her wisdom teeth out. I think that hurt me worse than when mine came out.

You are LUCKY! I know how difficult it is to capture the birds in lens. Good shots both.
