Nothing earth shattering this Monday. Just a nice image of a beautiful Great Blue Heron taken at Brazos Bend State Park in Needville, Texas. Brazos Bend State Park is about 30 miles southwest of Houston running along the Brazos River on the southeast border of Fort Bend County.
The park is home to numerous species of birds, mammals and of course, reptiles like the american alligator and its 5000 acres are full of trails to hike and explore. For a weekend wildlife photographer like me, it’s a target rich environment to capture.
