What's great and blue and wears a size 14?

In honor of Camera Critter's, I offer you the stealthy Great Blue Heron--ever the jaunty yet mysterious guy about the lake. I caught him with my trusty low-power camera from behind a tree, even though I think he might actually enjoy the attention!
See more fur and feathers at Misty Dawn's Camera Critters.

I love the strut! Great shot.

Great Capture! We have one that regularly visits our pond, but I can NOT for the life of me get a good shot of it. It flies away as soon as I see it. So, I sincerely appreciate how great this photo is.

I think it knows you are hiding in the bushes and it´s posing just for you.

I thought you were talking about me for a minute!!!
LOL!
I watched lots of Blue Herons on Vancouver Island but never capture a decent shot - well done.

Makes one feel like getting into the water with him. But no, he probably wouldn't like that.

You are so good at photos of wildlife!
