Great Heron Visits Us

I've often seen the Great Blue Heron across the lake, but lately he has visited our yard! I was excited to be able to get these pictures.

Sharing with Saturday's Critters
and The Bird D'Pot

Uh oh, he saw me! And away he goes!


  1. Hello, great series on the Great Blue heron. It is a cool yard visitor. thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week!

  2. Hope you have a terrific week ahead, and thanks so much for participating and sharing your birds for us at I'd Rather B Birdin'.

    In your own back YARD? How terrific is this? Wow...I'd be thrilled. You're living right. Jealous, I am.

  3. Must be nice tolive on a lake! I love the 3rd picture with its wings out.

  4. Great pictures! How cool that he came closer for you to photograph him.

  5. My dear Linda,
    you have to know that we live on the banks on a river where so many Great Blue Herons, together with storks, live ... maybe he's one of them who has come and visit you {{smiles}} !

    Enjoy the remainder of your Sunday, sweet friend,
    sending love to you
