The ever elusive Great Blue Heron. Just can't get close enough to get a good picture...such is life.

I have the same problem with our grey heron. But I have a Cunning Plan involving the purchase of a telephoto lens ;->

I pulled onto our bridge just the other day to come face to bill with a great blue fishing (well, probably crawdadding) in our creek. He hopped a few feet upstream until he was hidden by the vegetation and continued.

These are cranky loud birds who generally don't suffer photographers kindly. Still beautiful though.

Wow. Now that's some algae.

Actually, it's duckweed. It's a little vascular plant that floats on the surface of the water.

No matter what else is in the picture, the heron is the best. They don't really like you getting close, though, unlike Canadas and some others. But lord they are beautiful. I consider a walk around the lake here a little less satisfying if the herons aren't out. Good pic. You live in a paradise, it would seem.

That is a gorgeous bird. I agree with Catherine - you live in paradise.
