Sandy: Thanks! It's always exciting to see something out of the ordinary and have the camera with me at the time.

Mosefruen: Thanks! I'd love to stand next to one, to really get the feel for how tall they are.

John: Thanks! I believe he was too intent on fishing to care if I was there.

Great shots of the heron, it's always nice when you have a subject that is cooperative.

SAPhotographs: Thanks! I get excited easily :-)

Me and My Camera: I really did enjoy watching it just stroll slowly along the edge of the lake gracefully and in such concentration. I took videos of that, but was actually trying to be ready in case it took flight...which it never did.

Roy Norris: I was amazed at how big a fish they can swallow and wondered if some of the neck bends it did afterwards while walking were helping to "move it down" that long neck!

Hi Mary,

I am amazed that Heron didn't choke himself on that fish.

These are great action pictures; and aren't they such huge, magnificent creatures! And they are a study in patience as you watch them in their slow gait walk while creeping up on a fish or frog, but then their quick movement is so surprising when they catch something. I can understand your enjoyment of this exciting photo shoot.

Birdlady: Thank you! I hate when I have to use the digital zoom, because the photos lose clarity. I was very entertained by his foot and neck maneuvers.



Very, very nice!

Sandpiper: Glad to have you back and hope you tune in tomorrow, because I think my mystery bird is a sandpiper of some sort :-)

Cicero:Thanks! I can't imagine seeing them in ditches and such! I live inland and occasionally see one land on our pond, but they are very skittery and fly off immediately. This one just stayed on the far side of this lake and paced along....I took several videos but all he did was walk. No one else was around, so I just sat down on the boardwalk and waited. I saw him try for fish 3 times before he got that one.

Annie: I kept hoping he would take off and I would get a flight shot, but didn't want to scare him off! I was really surprised he didn't fly off the minute I spotted him.



I love watching them fly.

Good shots of the heron ... especially with its big catch! They are shy so you really were in the right spot at the right time.

At the coast we see them everywhere, in the ditches by the roadside even (but they wouldn't hang around if you stopped to photo them). Up where we live, there are a very limited number.

Hi Mary, I had a little time this morning before taking off for the day, so I decided to stop by. So many wonderful sightings! I love all of your pictures. I looked at your previous posts, too. The sunset, birds, babies, etc. All fun to see! See you soon!
