Great Blue Herons are another bird that I love to photograph. I like the way they stand so tall and straight with almost an arrogant attitude.
It's strange that their called Great BLUE Herons when their color looks like more gray to me. I've seen them in all shades of gray--well, I guess it's sort of a slate blue. What do you think?
These birds are pretty skittish unless you happen to have a fishing pole in your hands. Then they're all over the place ready to steal your fish while you're reeling it in. They can always be seen anywhere on the docks and piers waiting to steal someone else's catch. I've also seen them steal fish from other birds. They'd rather steal a catch than catch their own.
