Blue Heron, Atlanta, GA, 1 April 2014, #1

The pond near my office complex on Clairmont Road is home to numerous ducks, a couple of swans, and depending on the season, Canadian geese. Every now and then, a blue heron shows up. Last April, I was fortunate enough to catch some photos of one.

When I was in Myrtle Beach in October, I managed to catch an Egret, a close relative of the blue heron, in action. Here’s some video of that.
