Spot the Great Blue Heron!

This was sent yesterday by Stephen Barnard in Idaho. It’s a great photo, but somewhere in it is a Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias). Can you spot it?

    The heron is doing a wonderful impression of a mallard.

    I see more than one spot on the field and a duck.

    I saw one without wearing my glasses. I love how I can zoom in with fingers on iPad.

    Wonderful photo. I sure like it better than the 4.3 million photo.

      Am I the only one thinking that it would be worth 4.3 million to have that view from my back yard?

        I would rather have 4.3 million dollars. 🙂
