Great Blue Heron at Edge of Grass

Great Blue Herons Tucked in the Grass

It was a morning for Great Blue Herons to stay tucked into the grass, not quite hiding. In this first image the heron is standing in a tidal creek, the sun had just come up but was behind a low bank of clouds.

The second one I spotted was on the edge of a canal around one of the old rice fields.

A little later on the sun became brighter, highlighting the change in color in the grass around this pond from green to autumn browns and golds. Wading birds often gather on the edges of these hillocks of marsh grass, uncaring about the passing Alligators.
