Wordless Wednesday - No Scarin' Heron


This Great Blue Heron, initially camouflaged by the sunlight on the creek, seemed to jump out of nowhere into my vision. Although he was just a few yards from me, he remained a silent, motionless sentinel.

Your timing was perfect to capture the moment, too, Pamela.

Wonderful photo. Happy WW.
Heather said…
very cool.
when we were camping, a crane scared the beejeebers out of me. i didn't see him when he started his squawking to the right of me. the camera was too far out of reach to get it in time for a good pic, especially when trying to resusitate your own heart at the same time.
Debs said…
Beautiful Picture!!!

:)

I am feeling better now TY for the well wishes. :D
Beckie said…
maybe he was posing.
Wendy said…
We got a close encounter with a heron about this time last year. They seem to be fairly calm most of the time. At least, the one I met was. Great shot! :)
Sandy said…
Beautiful picture!
Rachel said…
I love seeing herons. I don't see them as much as I did, before I moved. What a great picture.
Jeremy said…
Nice shot with the reflection. They can stand still like that for hours....
Sarah said…
Awesome picture! We have Blue Herons, too...but can't get this close! Thanks for sharing...
