  1. Ted, I rarely leave comments, but I can’t help but tell you how much I appreciate your photos of herons this season! They are magnificent creatures and you capture that quality so well with your photography.

    When a great blue heron flies, there is a elegant, slow beat of the wings that makes one wonder how it stays in air!

    American white pelicans have a similar elegance in flight, and when several fly together, it becomes an aerial ballet.

    1. Thank you very much. This year has been a rare treat with the Great Blues. Some we have captured from the egg (no really!) to their first flight. I always thought at times they looked like a dragon.

      If you have not seen the ‘Tale Of Two Herons’ here (easy search on home page) take a quick look. From birth until learning to fly. It was a great learning experience. Thanks for being a reader.

    2. Yes, I followed the egg to flight story, and it was an interesting process to say the least!

      I agree on the dragon thing! Hatchlings are no thing of beauty compared with the fledgling stage, but the more you see of them, the more you see the beauty to come.
