As common as Great Blue Herons are throughout North America I am always happy to photograph these prehistoric looking birds. This Great Blue was stalking prey yesterday at Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area and for a few moments it wasn’t in the fog that hung around most of the morning. The heron had caught several fish successfully but seemed very interested in something in the phragmites at the water’s edge, perhaps it was vole but I will never know.
I did take quite a few images of this heron in the fog and hope to post some of those later because I like the mood the fog gave those photos.
Life is good.
