great blue heronry (1)

for the 13th consecutive season the great blue herons are returning to their nesting site in Stanley Park 
Downtown Vancouver. with more than a hundred nests it is the largest urban colony in North America. 
needless to say, the sight of so many of these magnificent birds at one place is breathtaking!

  1. i so love the gray silvery glitter in these...

    it must be a breathtaking view to get close to them.

  2. thank you, dear Roxana.
    the glitter is a visual effect on the image. lately i've been stripping and/or enhancing the colors where i feel it is needed. that being the case here. i am glad it catches the eye. :-)
    yes, the sight of so many great blue herons at once is a splendor, indeed.
