Zoom In on a Heron

 A Great Blue Heron - sitting on the bank of a slough - I only had a few seconds to get my pictures - we were parked on the narrow edge of the road, on a curve, on a bridge -  in Edison, WA (in case you are wondering where Edison is, it is right next to Bow, WA - two tiny villages just south of Bellingham)


I was very happy with the colors that day.

Lovely bird - and I like the colours and ripples in the water. We have herons near us too.

Beautiful shots. I do love watching herons. They are so patient and then move so fast when they go after their prey.

I really like the way the pattern in the water sets off the picture.
I think that heron knew it and was posing.

You certainly made the most of the brief time you had. Great shots!
