Great Blue Heron Surprise

(click on any image to enlarge it)

The Great Blue Heron is a large bird; it stands between 42 to 52 inches tall. As mentioned in prior blogs, it is one of my favorite birds to photography.




One morning I came across a 4 foot tall Great Blue Heron standing on the roof of a Purple Martin Birdhouse; the roof is about 2 feet wide.










In the past I have seen a Blue Heron up in a tree but never perched on top of a bird house. I believe the bird was sunning itself. It is amazing when a great, unusual photo, surprise opportunity presents itself.

Love this. I actually saw him perched on the roof peak of the big barn this week. In my 20 Plus years here I have never see that either. I love reading your blogs!!!!
