Great Blue Heron

Wading in the Shallows

Wading in the Shallows

We camped on the shores of the Lake of the Ozarks, in the southern part of Missouri, and awakened to harsh croaking sounds. I quickly discovered that these calls belonged to a group of herons enjoying the foggy dawn with a bit of companionable fishing.

    What a beautiful shot! Hope you had (are having?) a good trip. Like the new theme by the way – very clean.

    I think they are majestic birds, have a look at some heron chicks

    Wow–you are getting really good at reflections and shadows. I see a theme developing. Those birds are big!

    Nice shot, Bo. Great Blue Herons are lovely birds with a very loud and ungainly “honk!” They’re here in abundance, as in many places. I love them – great to wake up to.
