Great Blue Heron




I was doing a pretty good job of stalking this Great Blue Heron on the edge of Lake Ella before a little boy ran up and scared it away. His mother gave him a good scolding, but by then it was too late!

Linking to Saturday's Critters, Camera Critters, and The Bird D'Pot.

It's gorgeous Lois!! A great spot for a photo op too! And of course a great bird to spot.

Hello, I am glad you took a few shots of the heron before it was spooked off. They are fun to watch while they are on a hunt for food. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

You got some great shots before he got scared off. At least the little boy's mother let him know what he did was wrong. That's a good start!

Good thing you snapped these beauties before they were frightened off Lois ☺
