    Default Great Blue Herons Nesting...

    Attached Images Attached Images
    I received a call from Artie on Wednesday giving me a heads up that a pair of Great Blue Herons were building a nest at Lake Morton in Lakeland, Florida. I could not go on Wednesday or Thursday, Thanksgiving Day but I did go on Friday and Saturday mornings. Watching them from afar and photographing the happenings was quite wonderful. The position of the nest was in the open at the top of a Bald Cypress tree with a good angle to early morning light. The following images are from Saturday morning. Comments and critique welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for viewing.
