“In Search Of...” The Great Blue Heron by Michele Levani Charleston, SC

Original painting, “In Search Of...” by Charleston artist, Michele Levani. This Great Blue Heron is a common sight in the coastal low country of South Carolina. Common, but not ordinary, the Great Blue Heron is a majestic sight. “This stately heron with its subtle blue-gray plumage often stands motionless as it scans for prey or wades belly deep with long, deliberate steps. They may move slowly, but Great Blue Herons can strike like lightning to grab a fish or snap up a gopher.” (Credit for quote belongs to AllAboutBirds.org)
