Heron Junior

This not so great, “great blue heron” landed in the firs outside my house. I say he’s not so great only because I think he’s a juvenile. The adults have much more of a show of feathers. I’m guessing this one is a new chick from this spring. You can see an adult great blue heron in full plumage at the end of this post.

    • I had nothing to lean against and had the zoom on full, so it was hard to get it to come out clear, so it’s a bit fuzzy in places, but I’m happy that I got him to sit still long enough to get any kind of shot at all.

    • Well … one day when I was teaching a woman beginner piano lessons and she felt that her playing wasn’t good, she said afterwards, “You’ve got the patience of Job.” I presume that was a good thing…. But with the photos, I have a good zoom, and since I don’t know much about photography, I’m not expected to get perfect shots. I’m just happy when I get a new subject to zoom in on.
