Tuesday Muse

One photo on Tuesday - it had to be this one.  A Heron standing on a piling in Bellingham Bay.  He was there for over an hour - I kept coming back and taking more photos. It was hard to narrow down my choices, as I took well over 400 pictures of him - but he just kept posing so nicely.


  

Ok - maybe two - you knew I couldn't stop at one.
He was such a pretty bird.

I wish I could pet him. He is one serious looking bird.

Girl, you and that camera are something else. Loved the heron shots. Just so NEAT.

They're such patient and stately birds, aren't they? I just read a piece of trivia about the GBH and will share it this weekend on my bird photo blog [link is on my right hand sidebar]. Great images.

I love the herons, pretty shots!

Great photos - I would have taken a lot also with the bird perfectly posed like that.

Ida said...

Fantastic shot of the Heron. I've never gotten that close to one.
Glad you shared both. I guess I went a little overboard with mine this week.

Jeanne said...

He is quite a handsome dude. Posing like that!!

Mary said...

Who COULD post only one?? :D He is breathtaking, and you've taken brilliant, gorgeous photos of him. Love love love!

Gunilla Bäck said...

He's a handsome bird for sure.

The clouds make for a perfect background! Gorgeous bird.

Dave said...

He looks a right grumpy bugger . ... nice portrait though

Ken Schneider said...

There is no such thing as an overdose of heron photos! I know that feeling-- when I have 20 shots that are essentially identical, why is it so hard to pick one, and worse, throw the rest away to save disc space?

JoAnn: Talk about your bird pictures. What a majestic thing of beauty. Great photos..Happy Wednesday..Judy

Karen Frost said...

Amazing shot, JoAnn! He really is a beauty! I love how you have captured the details of his long feathers and his serious expression! xx
