The Great Blue Heron, or GBH as we fondly refer to it as around here, is one of my favorite subjects. I may have mentioned before it is North America's largest heron standing 4 and a half feet tall with a 6 and a half foot wingspan. This is the first time I've ever observed its preening behavior. What is a routine for it is a picture of beauty and grace to me.
