Great Blue Heron
 

Great Blue Heron
 

 

This large, statuesque bird stands about four feet tall [1.2m] and has a wingspan of almost seven feet [2.1 m]. Its distinctive folded neck in flight is a common sight throughout most of the United States. They catch fish by standing completely still, and then quickly lunging forward and grab them with their beaks. The heron has excellent eyesight, and is generally pretty wary of humans. A long telephoto lens allowed me to get this close to the bird.
