Taking Flight, Great Blue Heron

Taking Flight, Great Blue Heron

After feeding her almost grown chicks this Great Blue made the sensible choice. Leave quickly.

Feeding these large juveniles is rough, the young birds are very demanding.

Lucky for me the signal for taking flight , bent knees, was obvious here.

Their wing span is huge. When close like this you can hear the power, and wind, as they fly by.
