    Gorgeous capture! The heron looks quite tiny hunched down like that. Are they not huge?

  • Yes, they have about a 6 foot wingspan, an adult is well over 5 feet tall, probably more of an illusion from lack of objects to show scale

    5 feet???!!! Holy hell that’s a big bird! :D

  • I might have missed my meaurements, the books say about 4 and a half feet tall and a 6.5 foot wingspan
