    I had never seen this pose before but I assume it's just stretching its wings.

    If I could have this determination and focus in my ministry!

    This great blue heron was hunting for fish in a marsh. He looks so majestic. I love watching them fly because they remind me of pterodactyls with their large wingspans.

    Taken at the Corkscrew CREW, Naples, Florida. This state owned property has 12 miles of trails next door to the famous Corkscrew Swamp run by the Audubon Society, and its free.

    This was taken just after it had its lunch, a catfish I believe.

    The interesting point about, might be just the distance.. around 70 yards I believe when I put the range-finder on it. The Kowa eye piece is a 25X power, and 88mm scope lens, with probably a 2x camera zoom necessary to eliminate vignette.

    The Six Mile Slough is a must place to visit if you're in the Ft Myers area. It's a long boardwalk through a cypress swamp.

    Sorry to post the same bird so close together, but thought others might enjoy this GIF. Even though conditions were not great, I was really excited to watch this take place, and even more excited to snap these pics! Enjoy!

    Blue Heron getting it done!

    Forgive the poor quality, but no do-overs, you know. I was focused on some Greenwing Teals, but noticed the heron land across the pond. He was roughly 150 yards or more away, and I did not even have a chance to re-focus on him. Plus, there was tall grass and cattails on my side. They were in...
