Many time when I am hiking along streams, rivers, lakes or wetlands I hear the swooshing of wings overhead and regretfully look up to see a great blue heron taking off before I can get a photograph. On Saturday, while hiking in the PPL Wetlands, I was fortunate to come upon this heron standing absolutely still on a log in one of the duckweed covered canals.
I had better luck last year when I captured this photograph of a great blue heron catching a fish near Doylestown Pennsylvania. Here is a link to my photo gallery with more pictures of this awesome experience. http://www.keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-page-2/nggallery/photographs-page-two-blog/blue-heron-bucks-county-may-20-2016
I will try and be more quiet, and keep my eyes peeled on my hikes in the wetlands in hope of once again capturing one of these beautiful birds catching a meal. Here is a link to some more photographs of the blue heron taken last Saturday. http://www.keepyoureyespeeled.net/birds-of-pennsylvania/nggallery/birds-of-pennsylvania/great-blue-heron-PPL-wetlands-July-8-2017-
