Great Blue Herons
While vacationing in Merritt Island, Florida, I was fortunate enough to come across three pairs of nesting Great Blues. They were in process of building their nests, an event that matched the intensity of emotion as any I have ever witnessed between a man and a woman. What I watched was the most tender and sensuous event I have ever seen in nature. The female remained in the nest while the male searched for the material to add to their home. What ensued upon the male's return to the nest was an extraordinarily loving dance to exchange the branch brought home by the male. What follows is what I was able to see through my viewfinder and feel through my heart and mind as I created these images. I hope I am able to illicit just the slightest sense of the emotion I felt as I watched in wonder.
