Photography Wild Delmarva on 29 Jul 2009
Wading in the shallows of a salt marsh creek, a Great Blue Heron fishes in the last light yesterday. This is our largest wading bird on Delmarva and is quite common on both fresh and salt water. While they primarily eat fish I’ve watched them catch snakes, shrimp, frogs and recently even a young Clapper Rail.
