Monday Bird Blues for Ed’s challenge

This week’s Sunday Stills challenge, is ‘Blue’. He asks us to find something other that blue sea and blue sky, so I decided that the Great Blue Heron, the ‘King of the Pond’, would be quite a fitting subject. He’s almost always there when I look out, and has a few different guises, depending on his mood.

He can look sleek and very regal.


Sometimes he’s all fluffed up and looking very intense as he eyes his prey.


“Oh dear, I  just lost a feather; must be the stressful life I lead.”


Here, he seems to have somehow mislaid his long neck, and looks very grumpy about it.


He can also look as pleased as punch when he’s just caught the ideal-sized piece of sushi.


Which of his looks do you like the most?
