Big, Strong and Vulnerable

[One Minute Video]

The weather was pretty bad here today - lots of thunderstorms, tornado warnings, even some hail. When it calmed down a bit, I stopped by the Kissimmee lake front and caught a few pictures of my favorite Great Blue Heron. That was an Anhinga that buzzed him. I was hoping he'd come back for a second shot, but he flew off to annoy some other bird, lol.

We had that same weather yesterday! Beautiful shots!

Wow he really tried to knock off the heron - what a fantastic capture of this.

Wow great action shots-GT. I always find it strange to see the Herons up high but they are birds and they nest way up in tall trees .
I like the video.

I couldn't access your post last night. Blogger like to trick me. Grrr. MB


~beautiful captured moments...& those skinny legs* always facinated by them somehow!
