Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Great Blue Heron, Fishing at Gulf State Park

There have been several appearances of herons here at Flora and Fauna, most have been great blues.  Man captured this one while we were walking in one of the burned (July 2011) areas of Gulf State Park.

One ?benefit? of the burning is we can see the lay of the land and the birds and water fowl so easily.  Man walked out as far as he could on dry solid land to get this photo, as far as he could without spooking the heron.  Just a few mores steps after this photo and it flew off.

Love trying to capture them with the Sony and love the way they slowly walk and stalk their dinner in the shallow waters.

I love watching them stalk their prey in the water too. Master fishermen (err fisherbirds) they are.

Great photo, Carol. It looks like it's in the middle of summer! Sunny and warm on the beach hanging out with the Blue Heron!
