Photo of the Day: Great Blue Heron, Sea Pines Forest Preserve, SC

The alligators that I wrote about in a prior post were the most exotic creatures I saw in Sea Pines Forest Preserve, Hilton Head Island SC last month. But there was also the magnificent great blue heron that I photographed on that same one-hour guided open-boat tour conducted by H20 Sports.

The long legs of these carnivorous birds make them great waders, and subjects for amateur photographers such as myself. But their wide wing span makes them a wonder to behold in flight.
