Nature Photography Challenge (wild creatures, plants and places only)

A regular photography contest for Nature lovers who love to learn and teach.

Species Specific - Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias)

This challenge closed almost 4 years ago.

The Challenge

I thought this year we would run some challenges focusing on a specific species so we can see your point of view for that particular creature. Our 3rd challenge!

Only images that fit the theme (male or female) are allowed, others will be removed.

The challenges in this set will run for one week only so we can get as many different species as possible in for the year.
