Stop the Car; It's A Heron

It was a "Honey, Stop the Car" moment. We were leaving our neighborhood yesterday when I spotted a heron beside the lake. By the time Frank got the car stopped, the bird heard us and took off.

Fortunately, he didn't go far. 

I assumed it was a great blue heron because we have some that hang around here, although this one looks lighter in color. Perhaps it is an immature one?

  6. Great heron catch. I find that if a photo is well lite on the pond that it tends to wash out my heron photos. But I am always thrilled to see them....Michelle
