Hi Tex, Very nice photos. These birds are interesting. John
Stealthy, eh. I could use that skill sometimes... ;)
Funny, I saw some the past few days not moving.. They can be like statues.. Great shots, happy Friday!
You've captured his amazing patience when fishing. No human i know could be that still for that long.
Funny we just saw ours out on the pond doing exactly the same thing...playing statues. Have a fabulous Friday.Best wishes Molly
he looks like a beautiful statue
They are masters at fishing and have got great patience
They only move when they see me coming with the camera! LOL! Great shots!
I sometimes enjoy having a contest with these characters over who can still the longest. :-)
The closeups of his mad glare are quite eerie... He has a scary glary!
Musta been looking for something:@)
That's nuts. With his legs like that he looks like froze in the middle of a walk!
Still as a statue :-)
Snappy Title! I would have named it "Stock Still Stalker Silently Standing Seeking Sweet Slippery Supper" (a tiny fish)
Herons are really beautiful birds, great shots!
Hope he got what he was looking for! :-)
I have always liked their patience. What a beautiful bird!
they stand like this for hours, we have seen one stalking in the pond down the street, we drive by and come back and hour or two later and he is on the same spot in the same pose
Beautiful, tall bird. Nice reflection. Waiting for dinner has to be strong motivation to be still.
Moving our feet and adjusting the focal length is what we should all do -- and mostly forget. :)
What a graceful bird. I love when they pose on one foot ready to pounce.
Maybe he was meditating. And he's like REALLY good at it!
He was playing statues with you - you lost.
My fly fishing pal Roy stalks a stream just like these birds. It probably explains why he catches fish and I don't.
Heron is beautiful and it's nice that you visited. Regards.
The herons are so beautiful!
They always seem to be in some kind of trace.
I am glad I don't have to concentrate that much to get a meal. Their patience is amazing.
lol That's why they make the perfect candidate for still photography. lolThe last time I took a few shots of them they wouldn't stand still long enough so I figure they were young ones with no patients. lolBeautiful shots my friend!
Ha was waiting for lunch to swim by.
hehehe, don't you hate when they do that?? That's always the way with these big guys, egrets as well. I end up with 100 pictures that all look the same. They are really good though, close up with lots of detail!!
Agreed. They are so patient. We can learn a lot studying the 'nature' of things. The Waiting Game...
How can they just stand like that and never move!
Very handsome. It is amazing how still herons can be.
It's kind of creepy how long they can remain motionless.
Great Blue Herons are wonderful birds, but you're right, they seldom move... When I went to "my" lake recently I was looking for them, but I didn't see a single one.
I think that he would be the perfect kind of model for me, because I'm always too slow getting the camera ready. That's why I never get a decent picture of a gull :D【ツ】Knipsa
You're right Theresa. Herons are one of the very few bird species that I sometimes wish were more active as they can be like statues.
How do they do that? And they look so stern, but it's a beautiful bird!
A fine series on the Great Blue Heron. I thought it somewhat funny that he outlasted you with his "I'm not moving," routine.
Wow! He is magnificent!
He is a beauty.
The patience these guys have, eh?Wonder if they use anti-gravity shoes :)Have a Beautiful Day, Theresa.Peace :)
It truly is amazing how long they can stay perfectly still!
He is sure honed in and patient! I love watching these birds in action.
Beautifully clicked !
Beautiful series of images of the heron.Nice attitude as the heron hunting for fish.
He is a patient fellow, isn't he!!! We could probably all learn a lesson or two from him! Great captures as always!!
The air is full of Canada Geese this morning...they have come to feed on the corn field next to our house (not ours the neighbors) I'm loving it!Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com/?s=The+Adventures+of+Fuzzy+and+Boomer&submit=Search http://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com
Wonderful pictures, I love how you've managed to capture the beauty of this Great Blue Heron!
Great shots!!!!!! Love seeing those birds out stalking when I'm fishing.
Excellent shots! He looks very intent.
Maybe this beautiful guy was practising yoga in the sun?.. :o)
He's like one of those live manikins on the streets of some of our big cities (and I saw them in Zurich, as well). Very cool pictures Theresa and cool that he can stay that still for that long :)Andrea @ From The Sol
Fantastic series photoshoot.Heron is photogenic.Greetings.
I prefer my subjects to be still and even the still ones seem to be getting more difficult to shoot.
Beautiful Heron, love it.
T, Oh dear, it looks very serious! I think they're naturally kind of grumpy! Never strike me as being happy birds!Sorry I missed fences yesterday. A busy time of year!
Handsome fella! He looks very intent. Do you have fish in your pond?Lindy
Lol .... blue heron wild so do not move. Apparently he had a fish on the purpose for which he was lurking. However beautiful pictures of this heron.
It is the first time I see a heron with a blue head.Greetings,Filip
They are beautiful!
Hi TWG .. amazing photos - herons are just brilliant birds .. love them - cheers Hilary
I like Heron,Tex!They are so beautiful birds!Excellent shots!Dimi...
So precious! I'm betting he was thinking- yes, photo shoot about me!
Great shots of the elegant creature, Tex!
I like photos when did youy take your photos in the summer? I believe.
Maybe he thought if he didn't move, you wouldn't see him. :-)
Very beautiful images.Have a nice weekend.
Beautiful colors on this bird!
He is so very beautiful. What a treat to see these beautiful birds. xo Catherine
Almost like a statue...I wish all birds would be this still for a better chance at getting a good photo!! Great captures!!
Their patience and persistence is amazing. Good shots.
Morning Tex....worth the move:) Hug B
You moved first so he won again.
Such patience! Great photos!
Too bad you're not a sculptor; that heron can hold a pose for a long time.
Haha...they can stay still for so long makes you tired of waiting. Nice shot
All you have to do is try to get closer and they WILL move. LOL
Such a pretty bird. Guess he was stalking some fish.
Wow, like a statue !
TexWiscGirl: Whatcha doing?Great Blue Heron: Waiting for Godot.~
You're right , he never moved... until some prey comes along and then he's like lightening.
Well, I'm glad you moved! He sure wasn't about to. Great shots, T. :)
Great pix and a nice way to spend time....:)JP
Yeah, those suckers are good at that! If you can outlast a heron when they're in their "trance", you've got more patience than most! Nice shots of one of my favorites!Ugh. Word verification again. :-)
Dearest Theresa,Surprised that you too say this in English. In Dutch we say: 'Sta stok stil!' Stand Stock Still... This Great Blue Heron literally DID.Hugs,Mariette
lovely shots of the heron who posed so nicely for you!
Our pond dried up a few years ago. *sigh* I miss the wildlife it attracted. LOVE your photos!
I love seeing these gorgeous birds. They are very patient when hunting for their meal. Beautiful shots!
He does look very intent.
Love these shots of the heron!
That must really be called "Stability" lovely reflections. Jean.
Nice pictures of this "VERY" focused Heron!
Beauty-full!! I always love your captures! -Tammy
I love just sitting and watching nature. These shots are beautiful. I always find each moment to be so different- even if they look the same. :) ~Jess
He looking like he is in deep concentration.
You've got to look like an old snag rising up out of the water to catch dinner sometimes! Love his touches of blue. xo Karen
Great pictures, love the reflections
Great photos of the elegant bird. Love the reflections!
Patience, they name is heron. ;)
great captures! he stand majestic
He's a handsome fella!
I love the heron & cranes. Awesome captures, T.
Very nice series!I reckon if I had that kind of patience I could become a better fisherman.
