Bell’s Landing – Great Blue Heron

Great Blue Heron

Great Blue Heron

About an hour’s drive from my home is a place called “Bell’s Landing.” Its part of a wildlife preserve but folks are allowed to fish there with certain restrictions. I like to go there because of sights like this. The day I photographed this Great Blue Heron was quite windy as you can see from the raised feather patches on his body. Both he and I were fighting to stand in the strong wind and I was lucky not to get blown over as I tried to capture this bird with my camera.
