While looking for froggies for FFs to come, I saw this handsome Great Blue Heron across a pond, possibly Brickyard Pond, along the Norwottuck Rail Trail.
Great Blue Heron- Ardea herodias
I liked the pose but thought a little farther down the trail would be better. The heron did not agree and as soon as I appeared a little closer from behind some bushes lining the path away he flew. I am happy to have this shot.
That is the same fallen branch that I posted a few weeks ago with four turtles basking. I was looking for frogs and turtles but settled for a heron.
