Here's a beautiful Great Blue Heron we spotted while

boating on our favorite lake, on a may weekend a few weeks ago, I took a whole sequence, from flying to fishing (Catching and swallowing its catch) to drinking water, so it it very hard to pick which picture to post.

No, the female Great Blue Heron looks very similar to the male.
