Great Blue Heron

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” – Carl Sagan

Great blue herons are waders, typically seen along coastlines, in marshes, or near the shores of ponds or streams. Shown here at Oliver Mill Park, Nemasket St. Middleboro, Massachusetts. The herring are scarce now as the run is almost complete, but there are still enough to snack on.
