I have been trying for a long time to get a decent photo of one of the many Great Blue Heron here on the farm. These birds are so wild that you have to have a really good zoom lens to even get a good shot. I was pretty happy with these. I hope you enjoy.
The Great Blue Heron is the most widespread Heron in the United States. Not a very pretty bird with shaggy feathers.
They have long legs, wings, body and neck with a bill made for catching fish , frogs and other small animals from ponds, rivers and lakes.
They normally stab their prey with their sharp bill and swallow their meal whole.
