Herons, Herons, Herons!

I had a surprise the other day. I saw the Heron from a long way off and came to take some photos of her. To my surprise there was the Blue Heron that usually fishes at night with her.

The White Heron walked a short way off and turned to look straight at me. She was probably thinking, "Oh there is that guy with the camera again! I must look my best for him."

The smaller Blue Heron watched me closely.

She also turned to look right at me. I think she was trying to say, "I am beautiful too! Take my photo!"

Here is a unique photo of both Herons up close, together.

I was amazed at how close I was able to get to take these photos without a telephoto lens.

As I walked around she just stayed there and watched me.

Suddenly there was a flurry of wings as another Blue Heron joined us.

Notice the difference in build of the two Blue Herons. This one has a long neck.

This one has a short neck and a stocky build. Are they related?

She also turned to look right at me as I took her photo.

Remember this sign, in a previous post?

Well these five boys can't read I guess. They were fishing for quite a while. Look at the Heron watching them in the background on the right side of this photo.

These Herons are always a delight to watch.
