Great Blue Heron by the water for Watery Wednesday

I have seen very few Great Blue Heron this summer and so was very pleased to see this one yesterday morning by the river's edge while crossing the bridge so I drove to the park there. I used the photo shop poster edges filter to enhance its appearance.( please click on the picture to enlarge it.) While watching it flew up river
and as I watched it dipped one of its wings in the water.

Bye bye Heron, I hope I find you again this morning when I check down by the river for a glimpse of you.( see editing note below about this mornings sighting)

editing note: I took thisabove picture this morning at my favourite pond whileI was there looking for Canada Geese. There were no geese to be found, but instead I found two Great Blue Heron there, which were just leaving as I caught this one just taking off.

Lovely photos! The arced wings of the heron is poetry in motion. Mystical Teacher caught the event in words beautifully.

I love the shots of him flying! I don't seem to be able to get them, though! They are shy birds!
