My Favorite Images / Great Blue Heron in Flight

This Great Blue Heron was flying along in the shallow waters of the canals in Alligator River Wildlife Refuge in eastern North Carolina. It is a large bird, with a slate-gray body, chestnut and black accents, and very long legs and neck. In flight, it looks enormous, with a six-foot wingspan.
