Great thread. Herons are some of my favorite birds -- I've yet to capture a great, great blue image -- still a work in progress. Here are a couple from New Orleans last February.

This is nothing compared to what others have posted but I thought that it was interesting as I had never witnessed a Heron perched in a tree before.

These are very nice as well, I really like the mating strut. Even if it was not captioned as that, you get the feel from it!
