Monday goodies: Great blue herons

Happy Monday! Time for a picture break. I need me some birds.

Before further (kid-caused, technology-caused, or other-issue-caused) ado -- herons! Great blue herons, to be exact. Fishing, eating, glaring, and generally being awesome.

We love spotting Great Blue Herons near our home. A pair live at our local park and roam along the Rio Salado area. We also saw one at Kiwanis. So very cool.

Those are great photos! I love great blue herons, but I never thought of them as blue -- more grey than anything -- but your pictures highlight the blue.

The third photo down, with a close up of a fish in his mouth, is that fishing line coming from the fish?

Proud Mama: I think I've seen some at those same areas!

jo(e): Thanks! The blue really does come out in the right light.

Cindy: I don't think so; it was covered in stringy vegetation and fresh from the water. I think it's just a wet slime-string. Appetizing, right?

For your absolutely breathtaking pictures, I have nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. I don't know what it is, either. But, it means I think your blog is one of the tops.

Kim, These shots are amazing. We live on a small lake and see blue herons every day, but I have never come close to taking a photo of the Herons as beautiful as yours. Would you mind sharing what equipment you use and how you were able to get these amazing shots. I'd love to know.
