"Big Bird"

The theme this week by me is "Big Bird". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

My favorite Big Bird is the Great Blue Heron. I really enjoy capturing them in the wild. This one is walking along the Cuyahoga River.
 It got on this log to get a better fishing view. 
This one was fishing at Lake Hodgson.
Here is one at a park in Kent, the pond was destroyed.
Here is an artsy photo from Tappan Lake.
See what the others show.

Great shots of the heron. I like the shadow effect in your last shot!

Christine said...

Nice, Tom! I love the perfect S-curve in the heron's neck. They are truly beautiful close up!

I hope to get good heron pictures with my new farther reaching zoom. I too often see them from the freeway, though, and it is hard to get a shot from there.
