  1. What an amazing heron! And so at home by the bridge.

  2. love the troll allusion. I like the silhouette the best.

    Visiting from Wordless Wednesday

    • Thanks for visiting and your kind comment, glad you like the troll reference. Its fun to imagine great blue herons happily lurking beneath bridges.

  3. I like your “troll”. I hope he won’t eat anyone crossing the bridge.

  4. Always love seeing my favorite bird!

    • Thanks, Phil, it’s my favorite bird, too, as if people can’t tell BUT your Spoonie makes my top three favorites, right after the egrets, and before the red tailed hawks and ospreys, which are tied for fourth.

  5. Cool shots of the Heron..The last two are my favorite. Happy Weekend!

  6. brilliant shots with your fav’ subject, loved the last one 🙂
