Hope everyone is having a good weekend! This is a shot of a Great Blue Heron taken recently - it looked like it was on sentry duty.

Thanks for stopping by, and for your clix and comments on my recent postings - they are very much appreciated.

Stan its certain you are back!
Love this shot of your Heron. Bit different to see them in the tree-usually find them at the waters edge. I must say he is very similar to our Grey Heron.

You've got excellent sharp eye detail Stan, he looks so content sitting there, the shadow makes this an intriguing image, great shot, Adrian
