    Beautiful shots Paul and Andrew. Shooting animals is very exciting to me: waiting at the most suitable moment can be richly rewarded.

    Yes indeed it is a Great Blue Heron who still has some of his breeding plumage around the base of his neck. Wonderful Pictures !!!

    Great pics both of you. We don't have Blue Herons here in Europe. Ours are the smaller Grey Heron. This one is a juvenile.

    Glad you liked the pics folks.

    I like the one with the sunset, Steve ... such a tranquil scene.

    Andrew, I like the bird in silhouette (pic #1) and I found your 3rd pic rather amusing --- the way the bird is looking out over the water thinking "deep thoughts". (Would lend itself well to a greeting card w/ some sort of comment in a bubble over its head.
