Great Blue Heron In Mossy Tree

Great Blue Heron Surrounded by Spanish Moss

Mosquitoes had driven us from our walk around the rice field perimeter and I almost didn’t stop to photograph this stately Great Blue Heron. There was a little breeze here so I could stand for a minute and time my shots between the strands of Spanish Moss gently waving back and forth.

I had taken a picture of the tree an hour earlier when we were headed out on our walk.

  1. Lovely images Ellen! An amazing clarity in your capture of this blue heron and the softness of the Spanish Moss makes it look like a painting.
