I have not seen one heron this summer along the creeks out here by the house. By now we have usually had some visitors. Yours is so pretty. It is look he is standing there saying..”Please take my picture.” Genie

Awesome captures! Such a beautiful bird and I love the watery reflections, Mickie!! And your new header is breathtaking! What an incredible shot and a truly glorious way to begin or end a day! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Great shots, Mickie. When I see herons, they are usually hiding in the reeds or flying--how thoughtful of this one to pose for you!

These are really good shots. I think I said previously that I'm still waiting to take a shot of one of these that is half decent. I doubt that it will be as good as these when the opportunity arrives.

The first one is good, Mickie, but I love the second one where he's walking!

Love the reflections. Great shots of the heron.

The look so very majestic because of their height yet a bit awkward for the same reason. It's fun to watch them sneak up and nab a fish.

When we lived on the horse farm, I saw these every day. I miss them so much.

Great shots, Mickie.
