Blue Heron

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

We recently had a visitor at our cottage.  A Great Blue Heron stopped by on the dock to do a little fishing.  I took some pictures of it from the deck but wanted to get some closeups.  After going down the side of the property and moving behind some trees I managed to get relatively close to the bird.  I’m still not sure if it new I was there or not; it looked directly at me a few times but didn’t make any nervous motions.  As it flew away, after catching four or five fish, I was able to get some photos of it in flight.
