I've hiked on the towpath in Princeton that is between the D&R Canal and Lake Carnegie many times since 2020. I often see one of the four Great Blue Heron that 'live' there. Sometimes none. That's nature. And there may be more Great Blue Herons there; but I've never seen more than four in one day. This does not mean I'm correct, either. It's my best guess.

On this morning in November I saw this Heron snagging a fish on the far side of the D&R Canal. I carefully got a shot of it snaring that poor fish.

Great Blue Heron caught a PerchGreat Blue Heron caught a Perch Consider this: Great Blue Herons weigh only 4 to 6 pounds because they have hollow bones! Eating a 1-2 pound fish whole in one gulp is like you or I eating a quarter or even more of our body weight in one gulp of a living fish!

Amazing biology!

I then waited bit. It then stood up and I was able to capture this image - one of my favorites of Great Blue Herons because of the great reflection.

It then just flew off with that massive wingspan avoiding the tree limbs - how, I do not know. Once again, amazing!

It, as with every image on this website, is available in other sizes as long as the Aspect Ratio (height by length) stays the same.

15" x 10" costs $138.00 delivered to your door!

23" x 15" costs $265.00 delivered to your door!

45" x 30" costs $890.00 delivered to your door!

At the 45" x 30" size it would be incredible in the right space!

How can I help you!
