    Just beautiful. Must have been a weekend for Blue Herons. My dad captured a few as well. Beautiful birds. Always make me feel like I'm in a prehistoric jungle when I go to the local rookery.

    Really nice shot. We get ospreys carrying small branches with green leaves quite often starting next month. That is also the gift of red tail hawks.
