Great Blue Heron Photo From Bill O’Connor

Hi Joe,

I wanted to share this photo of a Great Blue Heron that was feeding in Wonson Cove the other night.  He would walk very slowly and stand motionless while he looked for food, so he made a pretty good subject. I was fortunate that he allowed me to get close enough to take this shot.

I can’t imagine what it must be like for the prey though.  How terrified would you be if you were a crab that happened to look up and see this staring down at you! 

For more on the Great Blue Heron check this link from the Mass Audubon!

    Nice picture, Bill. That beak is a lethal weapon! We have a friend who’s appartment faces a small pond. One day last week my wife and I watched a mature Great Blue kill a Vulture that tried to take away a fish it had caught. One stab and the vulture went down and never got up. The vulture was a young one that probably didn’t know better.
