That first picture is great. He's comfortably perched on his throne. Nothing to disturb him while he contemplates. Good night~

A striking photo. I love that first silhouette!

They are normally such solitary creatures. You never know where you will run into them. Great photos.

We usually take the canoe out for the morning or afternoon hours on the water, and see herons feeding at the edge, slipping ahead of us as we explore the quiet areas.
This time, we were out close to sunset, and the majority had taken to the trees.
I liked the graceful shapes they became as silhouettes--and they weren't nearly as easily spooked!

Lovely, Nina. I really like the first photo - nicely composed and it's clear you have a heron, even at a distance.
