We were following a large group of small Egrets and Ibis when this Great Blue dropped in.

I think he spotted all the commotion and feeding so made a quick stop to get in on the action.

He came in suddenly and rather than a slow glide it was a hit the ground standing. There was a lot of feeding and now he was the biggest one here and going to get his share.

    1. The Great Blues could be the most photogenic of the big birds. Beautiful creatures. Breeding season is just starting so we should be capturing many more in flight Great Blues. Photographed several just yesterday since we live near a swamp rookery.
