The heron does not seem to be deterred in what it has planned to do that day. Carry on!
One step and he would have been there, super catches of them all, did you know before that the turtles would be out in the sun that day??
Great and funny catch, Theresa :))Have a beautiful day【ツ】Knipsa
Good move Mr Heron!
I sure wouldn't want a turtle to snap at my toes! :)
We should all take the lesson and move on...lol.
That's why God gave him wings:@) PS-I see one of the Bubba's in the feeder in the 'you might also likes... Funny!
No problem. He just moved to Plan B. ;) blessings ~ tanna
It's nice of the Great Blue Heron not to step on the turtles :-)
Turtles are tough nuts to crack !
Beautiful photos of this blue heron.
Oh, the stresses of being a heron!
Lovely Heron, and the Turtles, lol.
Cute series on the heron and turtles.. How much can a heron weigh? The turtle is tough! Have a happy day!
I lub em
Good decision, Mr. Heron.
I've heard of snapping turtles taking down herons in ponds ....not sure if that's true or not.Nice Series!
Great captures! You are lucky to get so close to them. I find they are quite nervous birds if and when I do see them.
smart bird... and I love the 'we have lift off' shot...
Didn't want to get too close. Neat captures Tex!
I had to look for the second one, but it was there all right. Glad everybody managed to stay safe! I always enjoy your series like these. :-)
Looks like that long legged fella could have stepped over the sunning turtle...Guess the turtle had his bluff going on...:)
Well, I'm glad that he solved that problem. Haha. Great shots.Have a great week. One day left in March... Can you believe...Hugs,JB
No fooling him. Now back to peace and quiet. Have a terrific Tuesday.Best wishes Molly
Adorable. Rush hour in Texas?Amaliaxo
These are fabulous. xo Laura
What great shots, and I love your captions!
haha he kind of made a production of it didn't he?!
TexWis, every day I am so glad I found you. Your photos are such a morning treat!
Beautiful creatures, and they learn to deal with each other. Why can't people?
He looked and looked and did wisely, he flew to the other side. Regards.
wow! great capture!! I think it's funny that he didn't just walk around. :)
haha. cute.decisions. decisions. ((now that little turtle looks clean theresa!! wait til you see the pic's i got this past weekend of the turtles in the river. GUNKY turtles!! haha))
He was so wise! Happy hunting Mr. Heron! Do carry on turtles!
Great series of pics.
:) Very nice pictures!
When turtles attack. Ha!
What a great shot in action. Lovely bird. Great shot flying over the turtle as he looks up.Have a great day. CM
Haha. Cute! Love all the wildlife you see on a daily basis.
LOL!!!!! Need a Heron crossing sign. Great pictures,Francine.
I was excited to see your turtles, I think they are too cute!
Pretty funny, but I sometimes wish I could fly over things that I encounter -- at least metaphorically.
They just needed some sunshine.
Very polite of the heron to let them be!
That is a very nice shot of that Heron.
So glad you caught all that on camera! Hope you're having a great day. Jo
A fine series that a running narrative that helps give a sense of action between the two. This is a magnificent bird. You have such interesting encounters with birds!
Fun, great shots as always and, as always, a great start for my day!!
decisions, decisions!!! it must be hard, being a heron ;)great shots, love the wing span!!!!
A cute entry!
I would have thought the heron would try to have a turtle lunch, but I guess fish are easier to catch
Love these captions! I say smart bird!!
This is a cute post about the blue heron and 2 turtles.
He had to get away from those big scary turtles.
I wish I had a choice of stepping or flying.
That made me chuckle.
Crowded beach these days.
Such a cute post! You captured the moment perfectly!
What a beautiful heron. They're one of my favorite birds and I love seeing them!
Woderful images of the Heron and the Turtle,Tex!Great captures!Dimi...
Funny series of pics, Tex! ;-)
Lovley photos ,Nette
I don't think the heron should mess with the turtles
What a great series of photos of the heron and its antics. Beautiful1!
If they were just a bit smaller, they'd be easy to swallow:P)
I bet our Grey Herons would have a shock if they cam across a turtle!
Days of Our Lives at the pond.. very wise to fly over. But with those legs some nice high steppin' would have worked!
Great series on the turtles and the heron.
I was wondering if the heron would try to eat them. They're pretty voracious!~
I wondered if the bird was going to eat the turtles...nope, just hopped over them.Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.comhttps://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com/sherlock-boomer
I have never seen turtle in nature. Do they live long??
Good thing that bird isn't hunting for turtles or this could have an unhappy ending.
I'm amazed the turtle didn't scurry for the water when it approached.
Nice series. The Heron's a beauty.
She remembered she has wings to fly and let other creatures be where thry were :)
Nice shots that Heron !!
Such a polite heron to not disturb the turtles!
I suppose having turtle for lunch would have been too much work too!
I love to watch turtles sunning themselves. Life just passes them by.
Great pictures and the turtles just kept on sleeping.
LOL! I'm surprised the turtles didn't take a dive!
Nice ! Makes me smile !!
Traffic Everywhere!Great post, TALOHA from HonoluluComfortSpiral =^..^=
Guess those turtles can consider that "Passover".
Fun photos, Theresa - nice work!!
A wonderful series of photos! I rarely get to see those gorgeous birds. Thanks.
Smart heron, cute series of photos :)
Love the flight shot.
How funny! Love that pretty bird.
Hi Theresa, I have noticed that older turtles do get ignored in terms of being attractive as food. I love your pictures of "Old Hank Heron's" cousin. Have a wonderful Wed.
Dearest Theresa,Kind of that Great Blue Heron for not bothering those sun-bathing turtles!Hugs,Mariette
I was prepared to see a turtle snapping. :)Cute narrative!
I love seeing him fly!
Lovely. It's so fun to see them in action.
Seems so funny that a heron would want to steer clear of turtles. :)
Love your photos and captions! Great catch of the heron at liftoff!
Ha ha, let sleeping turtles lie, especially if they are of the snapping variety!Really great subtitles to go with this series of pictures!
A stately bird, but I'd fly over the turtles too :)
Such wonderful photos! Love how well you have captured the moment.
Great series of photos!!!...:)JP
That was so sweet, and at first I was thinking, surely they cannot eat turtles...and then was happy to see the ending ;)
Oh, how fun! Love how you've captured him in action! And concern over that sweet little turtle...smile..
Mr Turtle was probably saying, "thank goodness!"
You really know what they are thinking eh?
Dearest Theresa; Haha, I wondered if the blue heron try not to bother turtles or scared a bit being bothered p:-)The other day, I could have a rare chance to capture a blue heron. Looking forward to post a couple days later♪Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*
That's funny how it didn't seem to know what to do about the turtles.
We finally have open water, so should see turtles soon! I love them critters.
Nice!! I enjoy seeing the heron, you are lucky to have them stop at your pond!! you must have a lot of fish in the pond!
Great photos! I find it so fascinating that you have turtles in your pond! :D
Never let a turtle interfere with your dinner plans!
The pattern on the wings looks like a running man
oh my goodness, for a second there I had to think.. do herons eat turtles!! I was afraid of more than the wee things just being stepped on. thank goodness it ended well for all.
As I see you had a nice visitor again.
Glad to see Mr Heron didn't let turtles and a log get in the way. I am still sure it would have been easier to walk around.
