Not What I Was Expecting

This Great Blue Heron Gave Me a Bird-day Present Today
Can you guess what is was?
The landing.

Checking himself out first.

There it is ... all his glory.

I think he is proud of himself.

Yep, I was flashed by a Great Blue Heron on my birthday.
Not at all what I was expecting .
It was hard holding the camera still
as I laughed and photographed this moment.

Showing off made him a little thirsty.

The shiver ... I just told him I was posting these on the internet.

He is okay now ... thinks he can handle the publicity.
