This great blue heron image was taken earlier this year in a local park frequented by joggers and cyclists…and an occasional wildlife photographer. 🙂 While it appears to be wading in a pond, it is actually and area that had just accumulated water because of heavy rains. Surprisingly, it held this water for a couple months and attracted ducks, egrets, and this heron. I spooked this Great Blue Heron getting into my spot but after about 15 minutes, he flew back and I was ready. He stretched out his wings and gave me an awesome pose.
Until next time, good light and keep shooting. –KEVIN
