The Great Blue Heron

Just a few photos I took while visiting the Wellfleet Wildlife Sanctuary at Cape Cod.  While hiking thru the sanctuary, just happened to catch this beautiful Heron perched on the top of a tree.

Some interesting facts about this bird...

Amaizing how they can stretch their neck....
