Two Encounters of These Beauties~

I have two different Great Blue Heron encounters that I am sharing in this post.  The first one begins in Prospect, at the Icelandic Horse Farms, near Fox Hollow Farm...one of my favorite places out my way.

The second entry, that works along side the first were taken at the lake where my daughter Hillary lives~

  3. They are such majestic birds. Here we call it the white-faced heron to distinguish it from others of the species.
    I have one that regularly visits one of our farm dams in the summertime.

    Hope you are doing well with your monitor.

  10. I love it that you can see the pale color under its feet as it is flying away! I think it is always fun to see this bird!

  11. I posted a comment, I thought earlier. Came back for a second look and I didn't see it so I'll try leaving another to tell you how much I enjoyed your beautiful photographs. Beautiful flight snaps, and the water looks amazing here. I love photos of Mother Nature.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  14. Hi there - nice set of pictures. I like the ones with the contrast between the surface of the water and the texture of the bird.

  22. You do present some wonderful collages in your posts...

    Isnt it funny that the Heron (and I guess most species of heron) are always either captured by surprise or long distance shots, or they are flying away from the camera...

    I cant remember a Heron on film coming towards me or the camera person.
