Apr 22 2018 My Sunday Photo: Look out! Storm coming. Mr. GBH has found the perfect perch for keeping an eagle eye on what’s going on here. I find it absolutely amazing that he can land so precisely on the topmost branch. His elegance, poise, balance and control is so perfect. Share this:MoreShare on TumblrTweetLike this:Like Loading...
And on those long spindly legs no less. Amazing to me that with a gust of wind he wouldn’t topple right over!
It is amazing, Sue. I think their feet are well-designed for clinging onto branches. 😃
They must be!
Thank you. 🙂
It’s such a beautiful photo. I don’t think I have seen a heron sitting that high in a tree.
Thanks so much, Otto. He seems to like his new vantage point, and a couple of days ago, there were two of them up there. 🙂
It looks so elegant on top
Thank you for linking up to #MySundayPhoto
Thanks so much, Darren. 🙂
Looks quite precarious even for Mr. GBH! Fab shot Sylvia. Hope all’s well with you?
Thanks, Madhu. Yes, all is well here. 🙂
The branches are about as thick as his legs, I hope he flew down before that storm 🙂
Yes, they are. He seems to love it up there, whatever the weather. 🙂
Great shot Sylvia and I agree .. What an amazing bird with such perfect balance!
Thanks, Gerrie. He’s such an impressive creature. 🙂
On a place where he can see everything
Yes, he seems to enjoy being up there. 😃
And Mr GBH almost looks like he’s part of the tree.
Yes, he does, especially as he’s just a silhouette. 😀
That looks heavy in the sky, the bird though amazingly light n the branch. Have a great week!
Thanks, Ute. Yes, for such a big bird, The spindly branch is holding up well. We’ve been having some much-needed rain this past week. 🙂 Happy Monday. xx
Lovely pictures Sylvia – always enjoyed your posts.
Take care and regards
Thanks, Gail. Hope you have a great week. 🙂 xx
What a great silhouette photo.
Thanks so much, Amy. 🙂
Such a beautiful shot of a magnificent bird. Lovely catch, Sylvia!
Thanks, Gunta. He seems to have taken a liking to that branch. 😃
Mr GBH looks like he likes dark and stormy 😂😆
I don’t think he minds it at all. 🤣
I am always astounded that such large birds can land so gracefully- I am always amazed when I see it
Thanks, Lisa. They are magical to watch.
Fabulous capture, Sylvia. Those spindly legs on the thin branches are a perfect match.
Thanks, Jane. Yes, it’s hard to tell his legs apart from the branches. 😅
We have had no visits from our resident heron for a number of months, but as winter approaches I am becoming more vigilant!
We have a pair of these herons here and I’ve also seen a smaller one which could be theirs.
I wish I had that kind of grace and balance, Sylvia! 😉
Don’t we all? 😃
One would hardly think that branch could hold him!
He knew it would, though. 🙂
He’ll get a shock if one day it doesn’t!
He’ll just spread his wings and soar away.
Great photo of him! He has such thin legs, it’s a wonder he can support himself up there.
Amazing indeed! And equally amazing is that he knows that branch can carry his (considerable) weight. Great shot, Sylvia! XXX
That is so amazing – they are such gangly but somehow elegant birds. 🙂
He looks a little wobbly hanging on up there. Hope there isn’t a strong wind accompanying that storm!
gosh surprised the tree does not bend, I have only ever seen them flying or in the air. #mysundayphoto
Very Alfred Hitchcockish!
Yes, I agree, Jill. That movie was terrifying. 😯
Meme GBH clearly has good core muscles and great balance!!
Absolutely so. He’s up there right now in the pouring rain, preening his feathers as he takes a shower. 😅
Great vantage point. Mr. GBH = tres elegant!
Yesterday on our walk, we spied a Bald Eagle sitting in a tree spying on us!
Thanks, Nancy. Your Bald Eagle sounds very nosy. 🙂
It is really amazing how they can balance on a small twig!
I find it incredible. It makes me wish I could fly. 🙂
Beautiful image… 🙂
Thanks so much. 🙂
