Great Blue Heron – A Portrait Session

Not  classic Heron poses, and leaning toward the comical, this Great Blue kept me entertained for quite awhile on a recent afternoon. These shots reminded me of some people I know that are reluctant to have their picture taken.

Finally, settled for the pose, neck tucked back down looking like a scarf in the breeze, a very elegant result.

Interesting that the black patches are much more pronounced in the Great Blue Herons around Magnolia Plantation the last few weeks.
