Great Blue Heron: Flight & Landing

A Great Blue Heron soars across shallow water passing over a sunning alligator

And then picks a more suitable spot to touch down

Great captures. The Heron is so graceful in flight but looks like he is all legs on landing. :)

Great shots, Coy! I've never seen one with a heron flying over an alligator and I like the semi-touchdown in the second shot!

These are just superb! I'd love to get some decent shots of a GBH. Yours are wonderful!
