Stately, elegant, ubiquitous, and often referred to as the photographer’s friend because they are huge and pose well, the Great Blue Heron, or GBH, is not difficult to photograph because they are so large and stand so still.  On our Skimmer tour of the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, we saw lots of them, many fishing for crabs and other shellfish along side the Whooping Cranes.  This GBH was near the edge of the water as we motored by.
