Photo of the Week: Feb. 16 – 22, 2015
Photograph by Sam Bland of Emerald Isle, N.C.
The shallow depth of field and statuesque profile of this coastal bird that frequents North Carolina’s marshes makes the great blue heron’s brilliant colors, lanky body and feathers’ texture pop into focus. In this photo we can truly admire the heron’s greatness.
The great blue heron is one of North America’s most recognizable and adaptable wading birds. You might be interested in learning about the bird in naturalist Sam Bland’s story here on Coastal Review Online.
