Late Arrival

A great blue heron came swooping into the salt marsh late this afternoon just as I was leaving. The tide was still up and the water was at pelican depth, so I wasn’t expecting any of the large wading birds to show up…but glad this guy did!

  1. This photo is so interesting to me compared to the recent one where Mr. GBH was tucked in and streamlined. He’s got his neck stretched out here. The colors are amazing, and the background is beautifully muted.

    • It was interesting how this bird was flying in…rather then just a straight on arrival, it kind of did a circling loop which provided this somewhat unique view. πŸ™‚
