I always get so excited when I see the herons. I just love them. They are power and grace combined. Plus they are so beautiful. You don’t realize just how big they are though, until you see them up close. We see them fairly often around our ponds/lakes. This one was posing for me, but only from a distance. He was across the pond from me. Luckily I have a great zoom on my camera so i was able to get some good shots of him.
All you have to do is open your eyes to see. There is so much beauty all around us, just waiting to be discovered.
