Great Blue Heron love is in the air

It’s breeding season for Great Blue Herons and I’ve been photographing this pair since they began building their nest late last year. The eggs are laid and it shouldn’t be long before we have hatchlings. The above photo was taken when the mates were changing places sitting on the nest, the following photos I took after the changing of the guards.

There was just enough of a breeze to fluff up and show off the breeding feathers.

Time to stretch those wings, now keep a keen eye on the nest dear, I’ll be back soon.
