I was walking along a beach in Wilmington North Carolina and came upon this blue heron that you see here. He was waiting about 20 yards from three fishermen, hoping for some goodies to be left over. I guess he didn't feel like fishing for himself that day. This was such a nice opportunity to catch him on the beach in many beautiful fully exposed wing positions as well as a nice profile. They are remarkably calm around people.
I live near lots of small ponds and a reservoir that has Blue herons as well but never get a chance to walk up close enough to get decent photos. They must have halfway decent eye sight for my friend tells me he is missing carp every year and has caught a blue heron spearing his fish in his tiny back yard pond, no more than three feet wide!
