Great Blue Heron
Why was Frosty told to leave the grocery store?
Because he was caught picking his nose in the produce isle.
Interesting Fact: Despite their impressive size, Great Blue Herons weigh only 5 to 6 pounds thanks in part to their hollow bones—a feature all birds share. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Great_Blue_Heron/overview )
Marvelous photo! I love the composition with Heron in flight past the vegetation. Was this shot captured in the morning or late afternoon? (shadow on the wing gave a hint as to sun’s position)
Good eye it was taken in the evening as the sun was setting. Thank you very much for your feedback and Happy Blogging! 🙂
Forever my favorite bird and what a lovely capture here! Thanks for sharing

I see GBHs land on the tiniest branches on the top of cottonwood trees and the branches hardly bend under the weight of the GBHs.
Yeah they are not that heavy. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂
