    1. With thanks Barry, so glad you enjoyed this minimalist nature shot. It was a very beautiful evening at this location in south west Pennsylvania, so quiet and peaceful and I wanted to try and capture that essence and feeling. Posted one month ago

The great blue heron is a large wading bird in the heron family Ardeidae, common near the shores of open water and in wetlands over most of North America and Central America, as well as the Caribbean and the Galápagos Islands. It is a rare vagrant to Europe, with records from Spain, the Azores, England, and the Netherlands. An all-white population found only in the Caribbean and southern Florida was once treated as a separate species and known as the great white heron.
