Great Blue Heron Decides it's Time to Move On

From one of our web community members, Jim Dubois, comes this highly enjoyable picture series of a great blue heron deciding it's time to go. From Jim:

Every wild animal (including people) has a comfort zone of personal space, and when you get too close, they either attack or, most often, flee. I'd been about five minutes working my way down the beach a little at a time, when I finally crossed the line with this guy. He was off, and let me know in no uncertain terms that he was less than pleased.















Thanks for sharing Jim! You can see more of Jim's photos here.

Send your interesting wildlife or nature photos to us and we may share them right here on Nature Canada's blog!

Beautiful clear images of such a beautiful bird! It's awesome that they are visible on both the west and east coasts as well as inland. We often see them here in the salt marsh in Nova Scotia. When we go for walks in the early morning and get near, they sure can squawk loudly to let us know we're too close for comfort :)
