Great Blue Heron Silhouette

We are at that time of year when there is a lot of Great Blue Heron activity in the swamp at the end of the day with last minute nest building, one mate returning to the nest after feeding, and new-comers looking for a spot. Unfortunately the sun has dipped below the tree line and there is very little light to capture the action.

So silhouettes are an interesting option. I particularly like this next one with the heron’s foot flexed.

This heron settled down, probably wondering where to spend the night. Not all of the singles are paired with a mate yet with a nest to return to.

  1. Wow these silhouettes are absolutely stunning!! I love the one where you still see one of its toes touching the branch, so elegantly. I think these silhouettes are way more impressive than any sunlight could have added to the photos. Thanks for sharing them!
