Pterodactyl flyby. No, not really, but I have a friend that says Great Blue Herons remind him of the prehistoric dinosaur and I can’t say that I entirely disagree. 😉
These birds have small bodies but massive wingspans that can reach over 6 feet wide. Oftentimes found along shorelines of lakes and calm areas of rivers, Great Blue Herons are very adept at plucking fish from the waters.
I took this image at Belmar Park in Lakewood, Colorado, USA last month as the herons had just arrived for the season and were busy working on their nests.
