Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

This Great Blue Heron is one of a pair that are resident here at the little farm pond.  There are plenty of fish and other aquatic animals plus tasty larger insects to keep the herons happy here.  I see the Great Blue Herons nearly every day now.  I saw this one on July 30, 2012 and took its picture in mid-afternoon.  It was on this side of the pond.  The cows are closer to the water since it has been hot so the herons hang out on this side of the pond to avoid the wading cattle.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

    love these big squawkers. beautiful greens in these photos.

    • Hi Theresa, I also really like seeing “Hank Heron” (my husband named him after the ball player). Yes, the area is greening back up. It rained this morning but we escaped the thunderstorms in my neighborhood. So glad. Have a super great afternoon!

  2. You will now have a “Hank Heron” fan club!

    • Hi Montucky, Now that’s funny! Old Hank was here again this afternoon. I also saw the older trio of hen Wood Ducklings that are looking like older juveniles now. Have a great Saturday tomorrow!

  3. Great heron shots, they are a nice visitor to see daily. Hope you are having a great weekend.

  4. Beautiful pictures. I love the way herons fly. They’re such graceful birds.

    • Hi Song, Yes, they are graceful! I am fortunate that the pair of Great Blue Herons has nested near the pond and are here daily. Have a super nice day and a nice coming week, too!
