About This Image

Great Blue Heron lifts off from rocks beside the Fraser River estuary. River water below.
Think this is one of my favorite Heron shots now (that I've taken :)

Great shot Alandra, and I can see why it would be your favourite! I'm so behind in my comments...!

thanks Lorraine, yes they are very attractive birds, - think they are starting to get their breeding plumage now. I esp like the dark blue or black "tassel" coming from the top/back part of their heads. They are so clever at manoevering around, despite their huge size.

Great capture, he has quite nice colouring in the feathers, great shot.

Beautiful catch Alandra... I really like the view of the Heron's power being shown with it's rear flaps down for maximum lift. Great composition, the rocks and stuff at the bottom gives it depth. Excellent Job!!!
