This pair of Great Blue Herons have been dancing around the wetlands for about two weeks now. The nest is ready and we are all waiting to see them begin sitting so we can see the little ones. There are about 10 nests that we could see, but this one is the closest to where we can take pictures since it is a fence area to protect them during the mating season. :o)

Taken with a Canon Powershot SX30IS at Bolsa Chica Wetlands, Huntington Beach, CA, USA.

I try to create images that will touch your heart or soul and make them go “twang”. Eye candy for the soul is my goal. :o)

    Goodness Bunny, this is stunning how you seem like you are taking a pic in the next branch, great shot!

  • Thank you Lina. I actually had images that were much closer, but I liked the composition of this one better. I thought it showed the nest and their tree of better too. :o)
