Great Blue Heron Takes Flight on Budd Lake
Photographer: Jenyfra Nelson
Location: Budd Lake, in Budd Lake, New Jersey
From our boat, I took this photograph of a Great Blue Heron in flight. Against the backdrop of our lush natural bog, he's graceful and very, very large. This adult had a 6' wing span, and his feet were bigger than my husband's hands. They are on our lake, each year, and this year, we had at least four nests, with lots of herons to enjoy!
