This fellow seemed to be posing for this photo taken this past week by Fabian Green along Eglon Road. Or perhaps he was doing a bit of fishing in the small pond behind him. The great blue heron (Ardea herodias) is the largest wading bird in the heron family. It can measure up to 54 inches from head to tail, and can have a wingspan of up to nearly 6 feet. The great blue is found throughout most of North America, as far north as Alaska. To see today's entire issue, click on "Your Virtual Newspaper" above.
