Great Blue Heron

DSC_0806.jpg

The largest heron in North America. This Great Blue Heron stands four feet tall and has a wingspan of seven feet long. This Heron is often seen standing perfectly still in shallow water, where it waits for fish or frogs to come within the range of its long and sharp-pointed bill. A perfect summer day to watch it glide over the water and disappear into the marsh.
