Fishing at Area Dams

At any time in the Summer, Fall, or Spring, it’s easy to find Great Blue Herons, Green Herons, Gulls, White Egrets, and others looking to catch fish that cascade over the dams near Defiance and Grand Rapids, Ohio.

Flower Keepers

Every Spring, Summer, and Fall, flowers are placed in huge concrete containers at each end of both sides of the Napoleon bridge and in the designated circle in the “Veterans Park at the Bridge” located just off the Southwest side of the bridge.

Here are a few beautiful looks:

Great Blue at the Bridge

Great Blue Herons are one of several big birds that spent the Summer and Fall catching fish along the Maumee River near the bridge in Napoleon, Ohio.

I had several opportunities to shoot some close-ups of Great Blues (BELOW.)

It’s quite amazing that the Great Blue can appear rather grey, or bluish, in a standing position, but “morph” into a great creature whose front feathers feature white and are bordered in the back in magnificent deep purplish-blue while in flight.
