This is not a good picture of Harry, the Great Blue Heron, but it's the best I can get right now. Harry was across the river fishing yesterday. I had to put my little digital on full zoom and try to balance it on the front porch rail to keep it still enough so the picture wouldn't be a total blur. I will keep waiting for Harry to get closer.
I was chasing Ellen, the Great White Egret or Great Egret, in my boat a couple of weeks ago hoping she would stop so I could photograph her but she must have been on a mission. We have more of the the Great White Egrets here than the Great Blue Herons.
These are reference photos. You must read the comments to understand their meaning.
