I always feel lucky when I come across a Great Blue Heron to photograph, but can’t describe what it was like to come across an actual nesting colony of Great Blue Herons. Unbelievable. I have passed by this location numerous times over the years finally noticing the treetop nests, but never realized they were used by the Great Blue Herons. We are truly blessed to have them return each year to nest.
