The Great Blue Heron

It’s not every day that you see such a majestic bird when you live in a city, so I got really excited when I spotted this little (big) guy.

I couldn’t get quite as close as I would have wanted to because of the water and the wetlands so the photos are not quite crisp enough to call it a success, but hey I’m still happy I got to see it. Oh, and did you notice the turtles on the left?

The following photos were taken at the Lagoon Valley Park in Vacaville, on my way to Auburn near Sacramento.

  1. Superbes photos. Il y a plein de hérons près de chez moi mais les prendre en photo est un challenge car ils s’envolent ! Il y en a des blancs, des gris cendrés et des presque bleus.

Comments? They are much appreciated! ;)
