Great Blue Heron By Waters Edge

I was surprised on our visit to the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, Brigantine Division in Oceanville, NJ that there were quite a few Great Egrets & Great Blue Herons still around in January. The Featured Image was a 2 image portrait. It walked by me and was so close I wanted to show a little more of the neck. So I quickly shot 2 images @600mm for a pano portrait of the Heron. The images below are a series of images @ varying focal lengths as it was foraging in front of me.

    • Thanks Steve! Usually they are gone by now here in NJ. So I was surprised to see them. On One Christmas Day years ago, one was splashing around in the water at a local Wildlife Area where I used to live. The water was not frozen and it put on quite a show for about half an hour. It was about 12 ft from the shoreline and actually went fully submerged a few times.
