This great blue heron posed for a bit before taking flight.  In both cases, stationary or in flight, it is a very stately heron and appears majestic when in flight.

It has subtle blue-gray plumage.  It often will stand absolutely motionless while scanning for its prey.  Sometimes it wades very slowly, taking long and what appear to be deliberate steps before striking lightening fast.

These birds will eat almost anything within striking distance and while the majority of their diet is comprised of fish, they will stalk insects and also will stalk small mammals.
