This Great Blue Heron is stalking the edge of the lake in front of our home in Southeast Missouri USA. I was it catch a few fish but was not lucky enough to catch it on the camera in action.

    Great capture! Those guys are sometimes hard to see.There is one at a nearby pond sometimes and he won’t let me near him.

  • Thank you Pauline, yes they are wary, this one saw me shooting through the window from inside the house and flew away
