Gorgeous Great Blue Heron

Great Blue Herons are found throughout SE Colorado but I photographed this beauty at the Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Refuge today. Being relatively common in many parts of the U.S., they are often overlooked by those intent on locating rarities. In the right light, like in the top pic, I find their plumage difficult to ignore.

More and more as I use my new DSLR Canon xti, I have to admit that the quality of pics is so much better than with my Panasonic point and shoot camera as shown by the close-up of this bird's head. Be sure to double click on these pics to enlarge them for close-up viewing of head and plumage. SeEtta


Save trees in the Boreal forest for birds, not for paper--Opt out of catalogues
