Great blue heron with lovely lavender pickerel weed.


Thanks to Wordless Wednesday for the Wordless Wednesday challenge.

Thanks once more to Ese for her Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge – Spread. (When stretching like this, the heron extends a leg outward and then spreads feathers and wing atop.)

Thanks to Ed Prescott for the Sunday Stills: Blue prompt.

Thanks again to Stewart Moncton for the Wild Bird Wednesday prompt.

Thanks also to Sue for the Word a Week Challenge: Behind. (Boy am I behind on my Wednesday post for NaBloPoMo!)

Thanks to the kind folks at NaBloPoMo for the National Blog Posting Month challenge this November.


Remember: Walk softly and carry a long lens.™

  1. Nice photos of the Heron

  2. It’s like a sculpture. And love how the flowers kind of echo the colors of the heron.

  3. Very nice bird – I like addition of flowers!

    On hot days in our summer I will rely on you to provide cooling wintery posts!

    Cheers – Stewart M – Melbourne

    • Many thanks for your kind comment, Stewart. I’m happy to send you cold weather posts in your warm times, look for one in a few hours, with a prominent bit of snow!

  4. Hi. Lovely shot of Heron in that great weed

  5. Lovely photo of this handsome bird.

  6. Beautiful color, great pose. I saw a Ruddy duck today in much the same position — not quite as elegant as your heron!
