Everybody Loves Herons

Herons of all kinds seem to be a favorite subject of wildlife photographers. I’m no different. Maybe it’s because they tend to be easy targets. Or maybe it’s because they come in various sizes and colors. It could be their prehistoric appearance. Whatever the reason, Herons are a great subject for photographers and birdwatchers alike.

Herons are everywhere. They can be found in city lakes and ponds, along side the road where rain water has gathered, all the way to the Florida Everglades. Regardless of the location, I can’t help but stop and watch this unique creature. There’s something about a tall, lanky bird slowly stalking its prey in the shallow waters along a shore line that fascinates me every time.
