Debbie said...

Carletta said...

A lovely shot Karen!
His top half really does blend in with that background.
This is a beautiful composition!

Nicely done.

Mother Nature certainly knows how to protect her own. Nice photo!

Phil said...

You made a good point with your photograph Karen. When those herons stand motionless against the right background they can be inconspicuous for such a large bird.

TexWisGirl said...

Nice capture!

Leora said...

So graceful. I could see how you might miss him. He looks like he knows how to be quiet.

MyMaracas said...

He'd be hard to spot if not for the green. Lucky you caught the shot!

Great shot of the heron - I am often surprised that you can be looking for a while and suddenly notice one!

"Great" image of a "Great" Blue Heron! Hard to believe we can walk right by such a large bird sometimes.

Isn't he just gorgeous! Glad you stopped to find him. Great shot.

Red Nomad OZ said...

So how DID you spot it? I wonder if he knows he's almost the same colour as the background??!!

Ken Schneider said...

One can't get too much of those majestic Great Blues! Glad you saw it.

Dave said...

Hi Karen

You would have seen it for sure when the teradaktal type bird took to the air and blocked out the sunlight ...lol

Me said...

What a great capture, I never noticed that beautiful crown before. Love those herons!
