I took these shots of the Great Blue Heron here on the little farm pond on July 8, 2012. This heron lives near the pond here so it is here a lot. There are lots of fish and other goodies for the heron to eat here at the pond. Because the cows across the shoreline are often wading in the pond on their side, the heron is now coming to this shoreline more often. Of course, shady Oaks help keep the big wading bird cool while it waits for its fish or other bite to eat comes by. I was able to get the pictures but when I walked from the house, the heron saw me and flew off to the far corner of the pond on the other side. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photograph. Enjoy!
