Great Blue Heron Pose

Great Blue Heron Pose - Great blue heron checking out his territory in their usual stowic pose. The herons have this lovely blue grey plumage, long legs, and pointed beak and weigh only around 4-5 pounds due to their hollow bones. The heron in flight is beautiful with their slow wingbeats which can be majestic in flight. Don't let their slow movement make you think they are slow, they can spear a fish in lightning speed with those pointed beaks. We started out taking bird photos and even though thats not our focus any longer we do occacionally capture them, Herons can be found through out the US in salt water or fresh wading in shallow waters near the shoreline looking for fish or just standing motionless along the waters edge waiting on dinner to swim up. We went to the rookery off the coast years ago and this small island was pack with birds and I noticed that the heron were on top and other species were beneath in their placement. It seems that other birds build their nest where ever herons nest because heron will protect their nest from predators and have been know to attack anything that gets too close to their chicks. So by building nearby other birds also protect their own chicks. Our bird guide said he had seen a heron take on coyote and other predatore that stray to close to their nest. So their is safety by nesting underneath or as close as you can get to the great blue heron. Photo © copyright by Bee Creek Photography - Tod Grubbs / Cynthia Hestand.

Canvas wrap

Canvas wraps are printed on white archival poly-cotton blend matte canvas. The canvas is wrapped on a 1.5" stretcher framed and finished with a durable black backing. The gallery wrap arrives at your doorstep ready to hang. After an order is submitted, the canvas usually arrives within 5-6 business days. While canvas wraps are more expensive, there is no need for matting and framing. After a fine art print is matted and framed, the cost is often equivalent or even slightly more than a canvas wrap.
