Today was a beautiful day on Kentucky Lake. Hoping to capture some bird pictures, I took my Canon camera with me plus a zoom lens.
I was lucky enough to get some fairly good pics of the Great Blue Heron. This one was busy looking for fish and let me take several shots.
He stands so silently along the water's edge.
They like to be in shallow water and wait for a fish to swim near.
He soon had enough of me snapping my camera and was ready to take off.
They fly with slow wingbeats.
When the heron is soaring, his head is often hunched back towards his neck.
Although many people don't like them on their docks because of the mess they make, I always enjoy seeing them on the water or in the air.
Hope you enjoyed the Blue Heron on Kentucky Lake - Judy
