Default GB Heron

One of the GB Herons at our park is not all that shy. Will let folks get fairly close, as long as we go slowly. Here's a few poses from yesterday morning:

And his favorite morning perch (perhaps he's learned to read signs?)

Nice shots. Crisp, clean.

Can't tell from the scale, but doesn't appear fully grown?

LTZ470 - Thanks for saying so! He's a very cooperative subject - as long as I move slowly and avoid direct eye contact.

Tizeye - Taken with a good old Pentax 135-600 zoom - give fine results (although lots of CA...). I believe he is just reaching his adult plumage.

GW - Thanks!

A very thorough study of the bird, well photographed. The heron perched over that sign is a hoot - nice catch.

The few remaining brown feathers may indicate that it is still relatively young (but fully grown, as most birds cannot fly until they are fully grown, and most tree nesters stay there, in or near the nest, until then).
