That is a Great Blue isn't it? And very odd behavior for them. They don't like to wade that deep in the water...

Beautiful shot...

It sure looked like he was swimming!! I have seen them land in the middle of Lake Champlaign and then take off just like a duck. Here he is a tad closer.

Another nice shot!

Well, they don't exactly "swim." :lol:

This one was wading. If they hit deep water, they more or less immediatly fly out. Their far to bouyant to drown. Hey, no doubt some Blues have thier idiosyncracies.....
