[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) is a large wading bird in the heron family Ardeidae, common near the shores of open water and in wetlands over most of North and Central America as well as the West Indies and the Galápagos Islands. It is a rare vagrant to Europe, with records from Spain, the Azores and England. An all-white population found only in the Caribbean and south Florida was once known as a separate species, the Great White Heron.

Hello Kris,
Great shot of this pair of nesting Herons. Excellent detail of the birds as well as their loosely built nest in sharp focus. I love the deep blue sky in the BG as well as the attractive composition you chose. Well done.

I haven't been up to Sand Run Metro Park yet this year, but their is a rookery up there as well.
