Great Blue Heron Portrait

With a couple of my recent posts featuring Great Blue Herons, I wanted to share another one from last summer, during one of our boat trips up Tuckahoe Creek.  I had set it aside and then over-missed it, tsk tsk.

As we drifted by, I took several beautiful angles of this Great Blue Heron perched on a private dock pier.  He never moved, so it was all about his shaded background line-up that would determine my favorite.

Here’s the one….

Great Blue Heron “Portrait”


We continued on and had stopped for some other wildlife activity when a Great Blue Heron came from behind and flew right past us.

Great Blue Heron


I really don’t know if it was the same Great Blue Heron, it had been an hour since the pier shots; but I did enjoy this one’s fly-by with the subtle shoreline background.

I never tire photographing Great Blue Herons.
