An Amazing Find

Hubby spotted this Great Blue Heron as we
drove by the pond at the Izaak Walton Park.

He was spooked before I could get very close...

Wow, what a wing span!
I have never seen one of these in the wild before.
I apologize for the quality of the shots....I really need a longer lens.

Kerri,

It's my favorite bird. The GBH has devoured a pondful of fish at my homes in MD and DE. But I still marvel at it's beauty. You captured that bird beautifully. Gosh I love your photos!

I'm still amazed that GBHs can be found at all in this neck of the woods. Congrats on seeing one and on getting some good pics of it!

He looks like a giant plane in the bottom photo! great timing on this shot!

Beautiful shots, Kerri. They are quite the elusive bird. We have one that visits our local park pond most late afternoons. I've managed about 3 semi-decent shots out of hundreds of attempts. I've never managed to get one of him in flight, so I'm quite impressed with your shots. Great job!

It is wonderful to see a Great Blue Heron fly!
I want to let you know that I borrowed from your comment on my Zinnia photo and added kaleidoscope to the title. I hope that is ok with you. Thank you!
Also, thank you so much for listing my photoblog on your photoblog site. Very kind of you.

Those are great shots!! I see a heron quite often on my walking paths, but have never been able to get a picture of it. They are beautiful to see flying.
