I Have Arrived
Everyone knows how great blue herons have a way of making a huge production out of just about anything they do. no matter how routine it may be.
They often feel compelled to loudly announce their comings and goings, and sometimes have to let the whole world know even when they are just standing around.
On an earlier occasion, when this GBH flew in from the back edge of the marsh and proceeded to land right in front of us, it sure looked like he wanted it to be a dramatic entrance. And of course, as usual, it was.
Such detail,,, very nice!
Thanks very much for looking and I’m glad you liked the GBH shots!
For once, I’m lost for superlatives, Phil. Mr. GBH is such a cool character. 🙂
He really is a cool character out there isn’t he? We already know he thinks that he is just the coolest dude in town. 🙂
A real player. Great shots!
He’s got it goin on for sure!
He’s a show-off. Beautiful captures.
He really likes to use and display those wings to full advantage.
Looks like he’s practicing his poses for an upcoming show.
Sometimes I think they believe they are the stars of their own show, and I guess in some ways they are. 🙂
I wouldn’t want to argue with them over it.
Very impressive entrance too. Great captures
They really do know how to make a special entrance don’t they?!
Some folks are just like that, but with wings and feathers like that I suppose he’s entitled.
Yes that’s exactly it. He may be a bit of a show off, but then again he has attributes to show off.

Thanks very much appreciate it.
beautiful photos! I love GBHs… they are amazing birds!
They are probably my favorite bird out there (well until the spoonbills show up) and I always enjoy the active and exciting GBH!
My favorite are ravens… but GBHs come in a very close second 🙂
A wonderful image, Phil.
Thanks very much for checking these out and glad you liked them.
Totally fab. And stylish – those chestnut shorts!
…by which I mean ‘rufous’!
That is quite the showy entrance.
Wow! These are incredible.
Great title and a great post – so true…haha! As I see Great Blues all the time in our area, too, this really hit home! ☺️
What an entrance!
What a Beautiful bird look at the wing span.
I sometimes forget how big their wings are.
