Recently, while shooting a lifestyle video for one of our listings in Felida, we had the camera overlooking a spot on the trail. It was a fortuitous spot to choose too. At first, we didn't notice the Great Blue Heron standing on the bank. Nature has ensured these wading birds easily blend in with the habitat along waterways - where they frequently dine.
In addition to the benefit of natural camouflage, they are also able to stand motionless for extended periods of time, waiting patiently for prey to venture near. What a wonderful surprise to see this delightful creature make a move. Although, we weren't treated to its company for long - apparently this hunting bird had places to go. A moment in nature always brings us unexpected gifts.
