The Great Blues have been busy the last week or so. This bird was flying over a large open water pond. It’s a place where they should (and usually do) fly high.
Directly below him is one of the waters here with an incredible number of Alligators. They are what I call the ‘country’ gators, meaning car size critters.

Below is from the pond and pretty much the same area as the Heron.
A little fact here, Alligators can jump out of the water… just enough to snatch a low flying bird.
