Day of the Great Blue Heron

I have been seeing Great Blue Heron's & Egrets along the Cazenovia Creek , Buffalo River and the waterfront for the past five years, the watershed is clean enough to support their return . Getting a decent photo of one has eluded me, as they are very likely to take flight once they become aware of your presence, at least that has been my experience. After many (to numerous to mention) bad attempts, I enjoyed a "Day of the Heron". This example is one of dozens ... the bird allowed me to get within ten yards before finally having had enough .
