The Many Shapes of Great Blue Herons
I love how Great Blue Herons can assume so many different shapes.
The S-curve is my very favorite.
This is a modified, angular S-curve
With his necked fully tucked, you would never know just how long this bird can get!
Sometimes, a heron can look more like an Ostrich!
And at times, Great Blue Herons actually appear more red than blue!
This heron fished from inside a boat - and caught a little something!
He looks pretty happy to me.
Most of the time, I get lousy shots of Great Blue Herons. This picture was taken the day after I went to Charles's pond.
These last two were taken from the woods near Salem End Road bridge in Framingham. In the old days, I would have been happy just to see a GBH.
This was taken last week at Amputee Veterans Park on Lake Cochituate. The Great Blue Heron and a family of Mallards took off as I approached.
This was the best I could get today, at the same location. In my defense, I have had little time for birding or photography this month. But I will keep searching for Great Blues whenever I can!
