Blue Heron

Location: Venice Rookery Venice, Florida


        About the Photo

The Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias), ranges throughout the US lower 48, Alaska, and Canada extending south through Florida, Mexico and the Caribbean to South America. Adaptable to almost any wetland habitat in its range, Florida is a favorite nesting region. I caught this one showing off for the ladies looking for a mate at the Venice Rookery.
