Caught on Camera

This photograph taken by Chris Krall should be hanging on a wall in an art gallery.

A solitary great blue heron patiently waits in the early morning mist for an unsuspecting frog or fish to approach within range of it’s spear-like beak. Herons are one of the largest birds in Pennsylvania, and one of the most graceful as well.

Krall snapped the photo on July 11 while out for an early morning run at Frances Slocum State Park. He said he was lucky to get so close to the heron, and we’re glad Krall was happy to share the end result.

Capture anything interesting on your hand-held or trail camera? A nice buck, bear, coyote or any other wildlife? We’d love to see it. Each week, we’ll run photos from a reader’s trail camera on the Sunday Outdoors page. Email your photo, along with date and area it was taken (township is fine), and any other details to [email protected]
